When using a roller block in a vintage Mustang, whats the better route to go on the accessories?

Im considering a Blueprint 302 based on the roller block from Summit for my 65 289/C4.

Will my AC and PS pulleys line up with the aftermarket dampener, or should I go with a late model serpentine belt setup?

I don't recall when ford started to use alignment dowels in the block for the timing cover but I know they did. When I installed a 94 302 in my 65 I had to counter bore the back of the timing cover so I could use the alignment dowels. I'm sure one could just remove them from the block if they wanted to.

I would prefer the later model block over the early block for two reasons. One is for the one piece rear main seal and being roller cam ready.

BM, if you choose to do this, I know a guy who wants your 289 stuff ! LSG
The 289 stuff will go in the attic. Its getting to hard to replace or find when you want it. I kick myself when I think back at all the 200, 250, 289, 302, 352, 390 stuff I tossed in the can.
