You need all the brackets and accessories off of one with the serp setup.

If its a small block chevy just go to a junk yard and find one with the serpentine set up it shouldn't be too hard to find one they made lots of those trucks.

its a 6.2 Diesel and what about the water pump is it not a reverse flow with the serpentine set up and will that pump just bolt up to a 84 set up?

Yes, the serpentine belt water pump is reverse flow as to the v-belt pump... You'll need the backing plate that the pump bolts to as well as the pump and then it will just bolt up.

im also really interested in doing the serp swap but im a newbie and im confused now. did the 6.2 ever come factory with a serp belt? it that what i need to complete the swap or do i find a 6.5? if so i will need a water pump from a newer 6.2 or one from a 6.5 (are they the same?)? will the accessories from a small block bolt to the front of the engine?
