We recently went shopping online at www.summitracing.com and were impressed by the amount of quality custom engine products to be found there. From mild to wild, Summit Racing has everything that you’ll ever need to build or dress a custom engine.
We then stopped at Primo Restorations of Ontario, California, where Frank Melendez and his crew were working on a GM Performance small-block 350-c.i.d. “crate” engine. The candy-painted block was about to get a Billet Specialties serpentine belt kit that was obtained through Summit’s easy to use website. A serpentine system improves your engine’s efficiency, plus it looks cool.
The Billet Specialties serpentine system is engineered to bolt right on and align perfectly without stabilizer brackets or adjuster bars; perfect if you own an early small-block engine. Most of the heads on yesterday’s 327-283s didn’t have any holes for brackets as there weren’t too many options available for the early small-blocks.
Frank found the perfect serpentine system through Summit Racing. Now follow along as Primo Restorations show us how they dressed up a customer’s car with some under-hood magic, thanks to Billet Specialties and Summit Racing.
