Hi, my name is Jim. I live in Florida. I have a 1986 mustang that came with a six cylinder and i just installed a 1991 gt 5.0 motor in it. I just fired it off yesterday and still have a lot of work to finish. My first question as a new member is... Im not running a smog pump or air conditioning, do i have to buy some other bracket to make this work as far as routing of my belt? Believe me I have a few more questions that i need answers to. Thanks for the help..
Just take a string and make sure u go the correct direction of rotation for the accessories. But If I remember correctly the belt is 4 inches shorter than stock without the AC and smog, but it has been like 8 years since I had my 86gt. Napa is real good about having different length belts to try out.
