Default Help! problems with 5.0 install...

I'm in the process of installing a 5.0 with AOD into a chopped 49 ford sedan i'm building. Here's the issues:
The motor/tranny was out of a 91 mustang. It doesn't have any of the injection/smog pump/AC etc, it now just has an edelbrock intake/carb similar to the kind you'd find on a 60's mustang. I can't use the reverse drive water pump since the rest of the items are missing to run the belt through. Can I run an older style water pump like from a 60's small block along with the matching pulleys/alternator bracket? Will I need to swap dampners or run a spacer to make the early ford accessories work on my late model motor? Any tips/info regarding what I need to do will be a huge help. Thanks so much.

yes you can run the normal rotation water pump and it should work with the right crank pulley running a v-belt system.
