Thanks Dan/Dave. Thinking that I'm going to have to go dig for a dual wp pulley.

I have not seen a double wP pulley,  there is a deep and a shallow, and they nest together.  Sometimes i have seen different waterpump shaft depths to accomodate.

Hope these help, Its dark out there!

I didn't look close enough at the w/p pulley to see if it is 1 piece or 2 on the 194, but definitely 2 grooves. It's the untouched original from the Acadian.
I will pull the fan and have a better look tomorrow.

Thanks for the pics Dave. Looks close to the same setup as Dan's and mine but on ours the PS pump is driven off the front groove, so thinking small belt on rear(bal/wp/alt) front(bal/wp/alt/ps). Also noticed where your fuel line is running along the valve cover(mines wrong), my PS pump was hitting the hard fuel line so I couldn't adjust it (move it inward towards the block). Went under the car and installed the cyl and lines....everything looks good except the w/p pulley?

You need double grove pulley on w/p, alt and crank. Rear belt does p/s and around all 3 others. Need a short belt on front to run the alt. Won't have enough tension on alt with just the p/s belt.

 That's a great frontal shot considering that 6 cyl is sitting in the car !winkwink

 Drop her in....drive her out and we'll get some paint on that car.  Just happen to have a gallon of custom mix on the shelf.  194 Drags??wink I'm sure no one would get hurt.

LOL, that brings back a memory.

I was 17, had just bought my first 65 Canso SD. Sweet little car with a 194/glide. A guy about 10-12 years older than me was a tech at a repair shop in town. He had just bought a very nice 66 Beaumont Custom wagon, 6 powerglide. (I forget if it was a 194 or 230).

On a nice summer day, as a joke, we went out on the highway and squared off. Windows down, both of us holding the brake down and gas pedal to the floor. I forget which one of us said "go" but we went quite a bit of the 1/4 mile side by side, windows down, right to the rug, talking to each other. Not much noise and certainly no tires squealing!!!

I beat him by about a length, maybe a touch more! I guess my horsepower (if you can call it that) to weight ratio was better.

But he got the last laugh. This would have been the summer of 1974 I believe. He ordered a brand new LT1 short block, put on some good heads, carb/intake and headers along with a TH350. I put in a 283/TH350, L79 cam, cast intake and a Q-jet, 3.73 gears. Not even a contest after the swaps.

Must be hard to be out classed way back then?

I was 16 and in school, he was likely close to 30 and had money. I took an old 283, did rings and bearings on it, slapped in a cam, got my brother to put the gears in. Pretty respectable for 16 i thought. I didn't feel outclassed!

And I still constantly beat up on the 302 Fairlane with the headers, aluminum intake and high stall converter, which made him angry! 'Course, it was a Ford, what did he expect.....?

One last bug to fix. James and I took the car up Island for a good test run and blew a PS line on the low press side..guess it had a kink in the hard line part that let go. Took off the belt and cruised home. Car ran great and made it up the Malahat (steep grade) with no problem!!!! Should be smooth cruising from here on in.....he want's to drive it to school!!!
