March Performance Offers Accessory-Drive Upgrades For All Budgets

When it comes to automotive enthusiasts, there are two kinds of people: those that only use old-school parts, and those that realize the benefits of modern upgrades. Regardless of your mindset, you probably want the underhood area of your classic to look as great as the exterior. Since that is surely the case, we think you need to take a good look at March Performance.

When it comes to driving your engine accessories, March Performance has 30 years of experience in automotive performance products. That means you have access to a knowledgeable tech staff to help you with any questions you might have before, during, and after installation. It’s a well-known fact, all March kits are developed with unparalleled styling in mind. But, did you also know they can cater to almost all enthusiasts?

If you're looking to upgrade just your pulleys, March can set you up with either a traditional V-belt or serpentine-belt configuration.

Proper Pulleys

Let’s say you want to keep things simple under your hood but would like to add a little shine. It’s tough to beat an aluminum set of pulleys. March Performance pulleys not only look great, but they are also better quality than OE pulleys. The pulleys are made right here in the USA, with quality materials, like 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum. In case you were wondering how precise the pulleys might be, March uses precision CNC machining to guarantee efficient and reliable operation. If you want to have the best pulleys but don’t want to draw attention to them, you can either paint them, or March can also powdercoat them black. No one will be the wiser. “Our pulleys and all of our billet products are available with either a clear- or black-powdercoat finish, which makes them maintenance-free,” states Kim March.

If you’re wanting to upgrade your old V-belts to a modern serpentine system — and why wouldn’t you — March Performance’s serpentine pulley systems are finely-designed and engineered pieces of hardware.

Sport Track

I don’t want to call the Sport Track kits “entry-level,” but they are the most affordable kits offered by March Performance. The Sport Track serpentine system might be designed for the budget-minded builder, but it delivers the same March Performance quality and innovation as the more elaborate kits.

The March Performance Sport Track kits are designed for the budget-minded engine builder wanting the same quality and innovation as is found on the more elaborate March Performance kits.

Each one comes complete with pulleys and a strong and compact, one-piece combination alternator and A/C bracket. The bracket is manufactured from 6061-T6 billet aluminum, but instead of a polished appearance, it comes with a more economical silver or black finish.

Alot Of Style

March Performance’s Style Track serpentine system was created with a combination of style and affordability that’s sure to be a favorite among enthusiasts everywhere. The stylized one-piece alternator and air-conditioning bracket provide a solid support for the alternator and A/C compressor. A separate bracket assembly allows the optional use of power steering.

Much Like the Sport Track, the Style Track systems are an all-inclusive kit. It comes with pulleys, brackets, spring-loaded tensioner, 130-amp alternator, Sanden A/C compressor, aluminum water pump, and power-steering pump.

The Style Track comes complete with an alternator, alternator pulley with fan and nose cover, a polished A/C compressor and nose cover, a water pump with pulley and cover, a crank pulley, and an alternator A/C bracket with the belt-tensioning tool. Kits with power steering include a GM type-2 remote-mount power steering pump and the power steering pump pulley with nose cover. These kits also include all the mounting hardware you’ll need, as well as detailed instructions. Installation is a snap. You can also forget about polishing this assembly, as it features maintenance-free clear powdercoating — all features we like about this system.

The Revolver

If you’re looking to step it up, even more, the Revolver might be the kit for you. March Performance’s Revolver serpentine system is created with a style that is sure to add some serious shine and curb appeal to your engine. The highly styled one-piece alternator and air conditioning bracket provides a rigid support for the alternator and A/C compressor.

These kits make use of a unique, easy-to-use belt-tension adjustment tool. Once the belt tension has been set, the adjustment tool is easily removed and stowed away until the next time the belt requires adjustment. As a result, the Revolver displays a very clean appearance.

If you have thought about upgrading your small, big block, or LS engine to use accessory drive parts from March Performance, but thought that was out of the realm of possibility, here are multiple reasons why it’s not. First and foremost, there are parts and a kit designed to meet every need — and budget. The kits offer a simple bolt-in installation that replaces your low-performance V-belts and pulleys. An added benefit is the larger, included crankshaft pulley, which means better cooling and improved battery charging during low-speed driving — and its “no-slip” operation eliminates belt throwing. “We are number one in tech support for pulley systems and accessories. Our tech people will guide you through your installation,” says March. “With 30 years of experience, we have the answers to your questions.”
