Just Cool It!Zoops Products is proud to introduce their line of FORGELITE(tm) SuperCool(tm) Engine Pulleys. The pulleys are available for Chevy small-blocks and big-blocks in short water pump configurations. These pulleys are designed with a large-diameter crank pulley of 7 3/4 inches, a 6 1/4-inch-diameter water pump pulley, and a 2 1/4-inch-diameter alternator pulley. This combination has been tested by the guys at Zoops on their personal hot rods, and the result yielded a 10- to 20-percent reduction in cooling temperatures depending on various applications. This was not a laboratory test-but an actual field test conducted in the hot Southern California desert! The optimum reduction ratio was determined to be 22 percent. The test cars consisted of the '32 Zoops coupe (injected Chevy big-block), a '65 Chevelle (480hp small-block), and a '65 Mustang (built Ford small-block). All these cars experienced a significant reduction in engine temperatures with no noticeable loss of "seat of the pants" performance. The advantages of these SuperCool(tm) pulleys are obvious-better cooling at idle and low-rpm speeds, better alternator charging and air conditioning performance at idle and low-rpm speeds, and reduced stress to engine components due to lower operating temperatures.
