Reverse Engine - Has anyone ever....

Reverse Engine setup.

Has anyone ever made and/or seen a belt tensioner in the place of the ALT?

Most racers have run setups like that at one time or another

I have one around here somewhere . It's actually a fixed pulley that mounts in the stock alternator location . The adjustment is still on the right hand side stock pulley . I'll try and dig it out tomorrow for a pic

Marty,

Thank you. It looks like a very nice setup.
My guess is that the setup is also for an external oil cooler.
Can you please explain the setup and how it works.

I'm confused about two things:
1. The second pulley.
2. The direction the fittings would face. (If I had to guess the fittings would face the rear of the car. Is that correct?)

Marty - Whether it works right for whatever you do with it - or not - It is a beautiful piece of work.

Rod,

Thank you. I look forward to seeing it when you are able to find it.
I'm curious. Why go to all the trouble to make a pulley setup for a REVERSE engine on the ALT side and not have it be self adjusting?
