Like this.? http://www.fordmuscle.com/archives/2...ps/index.shtmlBut it looks like the water pump will spin backwards. You may need to get a different water pump.

forgive the lack of detail..but the red would be if you only went crank, water pump, and alt..and i would never do it because barely any belt touches the water pump...not sure but i dont think itd even work..

I dont know if this would work? You would need a ac compressor elimnator kit or fabricate a bracket with a idler in place of the pulley I didnt label. Don't be jealous of my fancy diagram.

I'm curious to see how this one plays out as I'm still trying to think of a way to run the rev rotation pump without anything but the alt. It was one of the last things on the list but you can beleive if I see a good idea, I'm taking the easy way out, lol

exactly my point..it wouldnt work..im sayin if he just wanted to run those three, that would be a route..and for the tightening it would take a custom touch to the alt bracket...ive seen that used as a tightener..but its still gonna be wrong if he uses that water pump
