I got in the 20's with a 6 engine and 5.5 rear. That is an MST trans, but shouldn't be too different. Be sure there is no play in your steering as you may loose control and roll.

Yeah that’s a pretty poor steering design. Generally people run 1:1 pulley ratios or there about with 4 or 5 inch pulleys front and rear. Go with the larger pulleys and you won’t have to worry about belt slip

Engine crank - 1" and trans pinion - 5/8" is pretty standard.
