from the looks of your engine belt routing you need a std rotation waterpump, grooved waterpump pulley...crown vic. grand marquis
but I know that the timming chain housing is diff for std and rev rotation waterpumps. I think they are using a cross between a these two cars and a mustang tensioner/bracket

No need for a grooved pulley, never had a problem with the belt sliping even shifting at 7700. It looks like it would need a std rotaton pump, but it never ran hot even with that stock wp.

Yep, unbolted the alternator, put the belt on, pulled the alternator back to apply the tension. Worked fine on my GT, worked fine on my LX, as well as several other peoples cars.

it depends on what pulley configuration you are using. The easiet thing to do is take a piece of string and run it the route the belt would take, then lay the string out on the floor and measure it. Take that measurement and go to the parts store and get a 6 rib serpentine belt thats the length you meaned as well as + and - a half inch. One of the three will work 95% of the time then return what you dont use.
