Re: Help: Accessory brkts for 95 5.0
Is there ANY way you have the bracket on wrong? I bought the same bracket (80 ford van), and bolted it right to the engine (90 crown vic). I didn't think Ford used a short or long water pump on any of their engines. I'm thinking that's mainly a chevy thing.
Other than "clearancing" the bracket for my steering shaft, there were no modifications needed.
There may be additional holes in the bracket to allow it to be used on the 351 engines. Maybe that's the issue?
I'm just thinking you have the right bracket, the water pump should be universal, you should be able to get it to work.
Maybe you can take another trip to the junkyard, look at an installed bracket?
