Small Block Serpentine
You can never go wrong with basic black. Take Eddie Motorsports’ Raven Series S-Drive Serpentine Pulley Drive Systems. They feature CNC-machined billet aluminum brackets and engine-driven accessories—170 amp alternator, GM Type 2 power steering pump, water pump, Sanden A/C compressor, and Gates belt tensioner (where applicable)—in your choice of black anodized, black powdercoated, and matte black powdercoated finishes that will look good in any engine compartment.
Like all S-Series drive systems, the Raven Series systems use either a six- or eight-rib serpentine belt depending on the application, and systems for GM LS engines come with an SFI-approved harmonic balancer. Eddie Motorsports was even thoughtful enough to use stainless steel fasteners.
Eddie Motorsports Raven Series S-Drive Serpentine Pulley Drive Systems are available for these engines:
- Small and big block Chevy
- GM LS Gen III/IV without VVT
- Ford 289-351W
- Ford 351 Cleveland
- Mopar B/RB big block

C&R Racing manufactures some of the hardest working cooling system components available, including stuff for professional IndyCar drivers. The benefit? You get the same expert know-how and advanced tech the pros get when you upgrade to an C&R OE Fit Crossflow Radiator for your 1967-87 Chevy or GMC C10.
The radiators have an extruded aluminum core ht provides maximum contact between coolant and tubes for consistent cooling that outperforms old school copper-brass radiators—no matter how much horsepower you throw down. The crossflow design allows coolant to flow side-to-side for better performance at higher RPM, and joints are TIG-welded so you don’t have to worry about epoxy falling out and causing leaks.
C&R Racing OE Fit Crossflow Radiators fit the stock core supports with no cutting or drilling needed, and have a upper ‘soft mount’ system for better positioning. Radiators for automatic transmission applications have a built-in transmission fluid cooler.

Now you can upgrade the rear suspension of your 1973-1987 C-10 with a new torque arm design, a complement to the QA1 front suspension systems released last year. With these all-new, engineered-from-scratch rear systems, truck owners can add modern performance to a pickup that was designed for utility—all without removing the bed of the truck. QA1 engineered a unique bolt-in torque arm design that maximizes performance without the inherent binding issues of other 4-link systems. Dialing in the stance will be easy with the adjustable coil-over system – 4”to 7” of adjustment below stock can easily be achieved.
Used together, the front and rear systems outfit trucks with modern-day driveability on all four corners. Designed specifically for 73-87 C10s, the systems offer up to 7″ drop, save weight, and add strength and stability for a great ride and improved handling.
IDIDIT Performance presents its Quick Release Steering Hub with Centering Pin. Drivers who require a removable steering wheel can now be assured of perfect wheel centering every time, thanks to the IDIDIT Performance Quick Release Steering Hub, which now comes standard with a Centering Pin.
IDIDIT Performance has upgraded all of its 5 and 6 bolt steering hubs to include a centering pin as part of the quick release hub that allows the steering wheel to be smoothly engaged with the spline in the same position every time. All IDIDIT Performance pull-type quick release hubs are SFI certified. The hubs include tight machining tolerances eliminating backlash in the steering wheel for very tight steering and feel. A steel spline on an aluminum hub means no binding of the quick-release mechanism when installing or removing the wheel, and the pull ring is made of anodized aluminum for weight savings
