Just when I thought I was getting things down on the Falcon project I come across the fact that some 302 water pumps were reverse rotation. Since the engine my dad dropped in is out a '95 Mustang and he put on a mechanical fuel pump I want to make sure that what he installed will work correctly before I put in all this work and end up with an engine that overheats. The part number on the pump is 30816-1 and the timing cover is RF E3AE-6059-CA (I'm assuming the RF stand for 'Reverse Flow'?). Without pulling the pump to see what I've got is there any way to tell with those part numbers? Also, the water pump pulley is smooth which leads me to believe it's intended for the backside of a serpentine belt. Can anyone tell me where I can get a grooved version of it?
