Like the subject says. I talked with ASP, and they're looking for a donor Jeep for potentially making an underdrive pulley for our application. PM me if anyone is interested.

Thanks.

Are they just going to make a crank pulley or water pump/alt. as well?

PM sent. I wonder how this would work.

I had underdrive pulleys on my 1989 Mustang GT and it made a noticeable difference in power. I did have to keep my foot on the gas a little when stopped to keep the rpm's up otherwise the alternator would not charge the battery properly.

I sent an e-mail to them last night. We'll see what they say.

Wow, that's crazy. You were the first one to respond to me. Unless one of the others drove over there that day.... What's did ASP say?

Will this be a ligtened crank pulley or a underdrive pulley. If we keep the standard size and lighten it we should see very good results with out worrying about the A/C, Alt, Steering, Water pumps.


But I am in If it stays the standard size.

ASP typically does smaller/UD crank pulleys, some of them are integrated dampners as well. If I have to buy all three pulleys I will, but I'd only install the PS/alt. and resell the crank. The only thing I'd switch to on the crank would be an ATI/Romac large diameter dampner. Too many failures have been attributed over the years to UD crank pulley/dampners that failed to quell harmonics as they should have--even those with SAE cert. This is why factory crank pulleys are so damn heavy, they need to be. GT500s for instance use a 26 pounder to do the job, and they are internally balanced as well.
It is also possible that they will do a piggy back style crank pulley, but I think the integrated dampner is more likely.

He said that he needed to see a Jeep, so I asked him where he was located and how long he'd need. He then responded that he already had one to look at or had already looked at one. :confused:

Well that sucks. Hope they're not just yanking our chain... I'll e-mail them to see if I can get an idea what's going on. If I hear anything different I'll post.
