Maybe easier to find in other parts of the country... Also, not entirely sure this will work with the pulley system for a Mustang motor (as I understand it, the belt to engine spacing is different on a Mustang than on other Ford 5.0 motors).
Mine is the A/C mount bracket....it bolts up to the mustang motor with the correct engine spacing....I've never had any belt issues.
I agree they are hard to find...but you normally kill two birds with one stone
as you get the bracket and p/s pump all together

Interesting. Maybe Ford changed the Mustang pulley system at some point? My motor came from a 91 and the A/C bracket is separate from the P/S bracket. Also, I'm certain my fan pulley is different than what is found on a 91 truck/van 5.0 (as are the alternator and air pump brackets).

I'd like to see some pics of your guy's engines with the Saginaw pumps. Spieg8, also any luck on figuring out the gas issue coming out the filler spout?

No luck on the gas problem... probably just have to live with it.
Here are a few pics of the Saginaw pump (dirty motor but that's the way I roll). Also note that I'm using an A/C eliminator bracket (Ford Racing part # M-8511-A50) so the pump sits where the A/C would normally be. Originally used the Saginaw pump with the factory A/C still installed (it works fine), but decided to pull the A/C to save a little weight;

Thanks for the pics Spieg. I will keep them for when the time comes to change out the pump.

Started working on the dash wiring which is actually all original and unmolested so it'll be easy to transfer over to my new dash.

Thanks guys. I still have a few wiring bugs to work out. I bought the bumpers from this guy in PA in the link below. I actually met him at the Cabelas in Hamburg, PA to save on shipping, so I knocked 2 birds off with one stone. The tire carrier arm is by Warn that I got off a guy on CL, so I welded in the spindle post for it to fit.

Got the windshield frame back from the glass shop with new rubber installed. Today is my wedding anniversary, so I don't if I'll be able to get it installed on the Jeep tonight

That is really coming along. How do you like the steering wheel? How does it compare to the stock wheel (looks a little shallow in the pic)? Does the horn button work okay?

Yea I pretty much spent the whole day on it today. Only reason I put this steering wheel on was b/c the Laredo wheel's horn button was real sesitive and sticking. So the horn would stay on sometimes.. This Lecarra one Iis 14" which is an inch smaller than the Laredo one. I still need to hook up the horn wire on it. The Jeep's got some balls now..took it for a little ride down the road. Pulls nice..the brakes need some bleeding and I think I have the pitman arm on wrong b/c it turns sharper to the left than the right.

That's pretty much the situation with my steering wheel, that's why I asked. When you say it turns sharper in one direction than the other, do you mean at full steering lock (wheel as far as it can go)? If so, you may want to look at the steering stops in the steering knuckle (I found one that was bent and allowed the wheel to the point of rubbing on the spring). The key-way on the pitman arm usually prevents you from putting it on wrong (or it will be WAY wrong if you do). Might also be a drag link adjustment.
