My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

You can;t just do the swap. Par of the serpentine change included an entire new front cover for the newer engines and the bolt patterns are different between the newer engines and the older for the front covers. You can just swap them out.

You will also have to change out the alternator brackets, A/C brackets, and redrill for the holes on it to line up.

As much as we all would want all the parts to interchange on these engines, they don;t. There are several changes to the block design and that is one of them.

You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see,
touch, smell, hear, or taste the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

The system DOES NOT automatically give me credit from your deposit. A rating is REQUIRED. You are rating me for the information I provide,
not the website. I have no control over the site fees, site errors, category errors, or how long it took for a response for these reasons.

I am not an employee of this website, so please rate with a POSITIVE (green) rating for me to get credit for assisting you. You still pay
the website for negatives or by not rating at all. I just get nothing from that payment you made. So please rate each answer I provide.

I want you pleased with my service to you so please inform me before rating negative (red) and I will do my best to make it right. Follow
ups for same question are always free after ratings have been made.

I do have many workshop manuals, diagrams, etc that I pay to get access to out of my pocket. If one is needed, please ask and I will give
you an offer at my technician discounted cost to you for such manuals. I never charge above that cost.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!

I'm going to opt out of this for what you are asking for will require a lot of information that I don't have access to.

Good luck on getting the switch done. It will require a lot of work.

I will allow another expert to assist.
