OK, putting the engine together and not sure if chrome brackets will be better in the long run than original ones repainted (Alternator, etc). Anyone out there can tell me how they last and if there are any other options? Also, what about the chrome pulley's I've seen? Not caring about the prettiness (new word) just want it to last. Thanks

the only negative i've encountered with chrome pulleys is that the belts can slip occasionally due to the smooth shiny chrome in the sheave. you can sand it out or bead blast it but you have to mask off the rest to bead blast it. PITA sort-of.

Hi Steve, You live up here in salty new england. My experience is unless you keep it clean and waxed it is going to RUST... Powder coat or paint it...just my opinion...
