Re: Upgrade to 3g alternator and dual electric fans

You can use a water pump pulley from a 95 Ranger . One of the 90's Taurus uses a bolt on crank pulley that slips over the two groove damper on the 200. You will need to make a spacer and drill holes to line up with the holes in the damper. I used idler pulleys from 95 V-6 mustang. That will get you ...
