G-60 Short Block Question

340 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Hakaida
I got a cherry G-60 Block from a friend, I am going to turbo my Caddy utilizing this block, but the block did not include the alternator bracket, nor any waterpump housing. My question is, can any A-2 items fit on that block, for I have an A-2 at home and I can use the Alternator, waterpump etc, etc.
Thanks in advance

Re: G-60 Short Block Question (VWCORADO)

Hakaikda, Ditto what VWCORADO says. Plus you'll need to get the plate that blocks off behind the charger mount -- easily available at any junk yard (I think it used to be for a mechanical fuel pump on way older cars). The beautiful thing is you can use all A-2 pieces for the accessory drives and avoid the expensive G-60 pieces like the alternator and A/C compressor (do you need power steering? think about that). The G-60 block is an excellent choice for turbocharging because is has the piston oil squirters and improved coolant flow around the end of the number one cylinder. Sounds like a cool project! Have fun, Rich
