Guys I have the March setup for my alternator. I run an alternator, water pump, crank, and power steering. I want to get rid of the power steering and use a manual rack. So how should I run my serpertine belt with the alternator, water pump, and crank?

Yes that is what I'm using now....
Thats how i have mine, but i am still using the stock size pullies, belt around crank and alt. and touches about 1 1/2 to 2 inches on the passenger side of the waterpump pulley
Always ran it that way and never had an issue

Would I be better off with a larger or smaller crank pulley? Also would I be better off with a larger or smaller water pump pulley?

Need this back to the top. I have used every belt I can find from below 40'' and they are to short. I have used 40'' and they are to big. So I need to get a different size pulley or something.

which march set up do you have? the one i got came with a diagram of how to route the belt. the belt goes around the alternater, down the backside of the water pump( left side if facing the engine from the front), and around the crank then back up to the alternater. the belt is well under 40". i'd have to go look to give you an exact length.

get a high flow electric water pump, that gets rid of that pulley and go with a underdrive pulley for the crank and put a low mount alternator setup and get a 31" belt, problem solved, looks good and opens up the motor compartment
