    I have an early 90s tbi 350 in my k10 now. I'd guess 90-92. I have a new 95 tbi 350 I want to put in. Not sure if I can just swap my power steering pump, water pump, etc with out any issue as they started to put belt tensioner for the serpentine belts during thise years. Do yall think I can get away with the current set up, (alternator acts as the tensioner, no idler pulley) and just kinda slap the setup onto the 95? Or do I need to go out and buy a tensioner and possibly another water pump, alternator etc? A little new to the TBI engines...

    I swapped a 93 350 tbi into my 85 C10. It has a serpentine belt and tensioner setup. I would assume that you would have to run the newer setup of the 95 you have or change the front accessory brackets to you old setup. I'm my experience, it all has to do with the accessory brackets. Run the correct brackets for what ever belts you want to run. If that makes sense.
