Proper Belt Routing Diagram

Does anyone know the proper belt routing sequence for a 1973 Corvette 454/275HP motor with A/C, Power Steering, Alt., and A.I.R. Pump? Previous owner modified belt routing to gain more H.P. I'm trying to bring car back to original specs. and can not find any diagrams or pictures that clearly show how the belts were originally routed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

Neil

P.S. Lots of good folks on this site, got great help the other day with radiator fan shroud removal. Thanks again...

The best advice I can give you is to purchase the assembly manual. I suggest Mid America. It has the best overall information you will need. There only about $20.00 and will save you lots of time.....

Thanks for the advice. I have never seen a Corvette assembly manual before, just used Chiltons for past restorations. Hopefully the manual will provide a clear picture or description of where the belts were originally routed for my configuration.

ooh, yikes. I tried Chiltons to do some work on my Jeep and ended up taking it back. Those manuals don't even compare to the original GM Chassis Service and Chassis Overhaul manuals. The Assembly manual is also really handy if you're doing major work.

I got mine off ebay for about 20 to 25 bucks each. Well worth it

Optimists think the glass is half full.
Pessimists think the glass is half empty.
Engineers realize it's twice as big as it needs to be.

O.K., the assembly manual sounds like a good choice.

P.S. Being an engineer I can appreciate the glass joke. It's true though, that is the way an engineer thinks...
