    Speedway Cast Aluminum double groove pulleys for Small Block Chevy feature a 20% reduction. Reduction pulleys have a smaller diameter which slows the speed of your fan, water pump, and alternator to reduce drag for more top-end horsepower. Plus, high RPM water pump operation is improved due to reduced fluid cavitation.

    This is a 25% reduction pulley when used with the correct upper pulley, part number 91015476.

    • Machined from lightweight cast aluminum
    • Superior belt retention with extra-deep grooves
    • 20% reduction slows accessories down for less drag
    • Adds top-end horsepower
    • Reduces water pump impeller speed below cavitation threshold
    • Improved high-RPM cooling capabilities
    • 910-15488
      • 5-7/16" O.D.

    Available for long water pumps. 5/8" shaft.

    Note: The lower crank pulleys are manufactured thicker than normal stock pulleys.  This requires longer 3/8" bolts to be purchased separately.  Allen head type bolts recommended.

    The new DynaForce Starter is designed to crank over the highest compression engines on a hot day in Death Valley. Not that too many race cars are sitting in Death Valley, but it’s good to know that you have the oomph to make it happen. The DynaForce Starter features all new components beginning with a three horsepower motor. This power is used to crank over the reduced 4.4:1 gear set to deliver great torque to the engine’s ring gear to get the engine turning. The armature is balanced during assembly and is guided by two ball bearings for smooth engagement and thousands of starts. The downsized housing clears most headers and oil pans, but just in case, we made the billet mount so it can be clocked in different positions to help in tight applications. The assembly is powder coated MSD red and will stay looking good, even though it’s underneath your car.  WILL NOT FIT GTO's.  For GM LS Series Engines.

    • Gear reduction of 4.4:1 improves torque for great cranking
    • Three horsepower motor provides power for high compression engines
    • Ball bearing supported armature and pinion gear
