i would either get the ac eliminator kit or get a shorter belt. if you go with the shorter belt just make sure that you get it to the right size

the easiest f***ing way to to remove the pump. you dont need that f***ing thing turning if you dont have the rest of the components. have fun trying to get the right belt without the kit. the FRPP moves the power steering pump up where the ac was. then go to the store and with no measuring tell the clerk that you need a belt for a AC delete mustang 5.0. and they will give you a perfect fit belt.

if you get the kit. ill tell you the part number you need for the belt.

I dont know if i want the sterring pump up there, i want that extra bit of room up top. Where can I get the different bracket? The belt can't be that tough to measure for as long as it clears. btw how much play is there supposed to be in the belt? 1/2 inch?

i had a march ac eliminator and i didnt like it it would throw belts and shred them to pieces thats why i recomended the ford racing eliminator, as for the belt size life the tensior up as high as you can go just to make sure they'll be enough clearance... and from personal experince bypass the smog pump!

Why dont you just put hte power steering up there???????Seriosly why pay money for the ac eliminator when you can do it for free???Thats what i did....Thats where it is factory so it wont be in the way...If you run with the air pump then you can go buy a belt, but if you get rid of air pump then you will have to measure it...

the FRPP ac elimnator is a bracket that is factory from ford. that you use to mount the power steering pump up where the AC used to be. it bolts to the head and water pump.

Ohhh, ok....wasnt to sure about that, All my point was to go to a wreckin yark and you could get the bracket for like 5 bux.....some people buy a idler for the place of the ac... i think that is useless....Well thanx for the info on the frpp eliminator.....
