Last season, I installed the 6 rib pulley's on my 95 maristar (350 tbi) replacing the v-belt pulleys etc. When I went to winterize the boat, I noticed the bracket that holds the raw water pump to the block was broken in two (at the weld). My guess is that the new pulleys stick out farther then the old v-belt pulleys~which put stress on the bracket and made it snap at its weakest link. Does anyone know if there is a different bracket for the RWP for the 6 rib pulleys vs. the old v-belt style?
