I reread my post and see the confusion. I was trying to say that the Explorer water pump would not work with a mechanical fuel pump because it requires a special timing chain cover that does not have the mounting provisions for a mechanical fuel pump.On 2006-10-27 14:09, ChicoB wrote:
The rotation of the water pump makes no difference on a mechanical fuel pump. The pump is driven off the timing chain, the WP has nothing to do with it.
I am using the Summit Racing aluminum bracket for my alternator. The large long bolt goes to head and the other two go through the water pump. I think it will work with the short pump. I have some photos of the pump installed on another Falcon. PM me your email address and I'll send them to you.On 2006-10-27 14:03, calfordguy wrote:
Correct, I have the lower radiator outlet on the drivers side for this pump, and it uses the original timing chain cover unlike the explorer version, my concern besides finding the right pulley that will line up with my existing setup is that it doesn't have the extra alternator bracket mounting hole that my early WP setup has. I found a real shallow WP pulley at Pick a Part this morning off a Chrysler that might work and I will probably have to fab a new Alternator bracket that uses the available bolts.
