I was curious what people have done for converting from v belt to serpentine without spending the price for billet.... i have a 85 F250 with the egr and emmensions system deleted. Any suggestions on lower profile brackets and mounts would ge greatly appreciated or model years for swapping out brackets

When I was building my engine, I tried to do what you're after. After going to junk yards and pricing everything out, I found I could get a March system much cheaper, and it's better looking then a bunch of bulky factory steel brackets that I'd probably butcher up to remove unnecessary mounting points on. Since then CVF has come out with these: Big Block Ford Engine Accessories | Serpentine Conversion System

The Poly Vee stuff on the later trucks is nice but not serpentine and the 93 and up requires a specific water pump.

F250 models starting at least in '89 had serpentine belt setups. I did a conversion on an '87 F250 with a 351w.
