  1. Last wiring question...hopefully

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I tested all my wiring yesterday ( without actually cranking since I'm waiting on some more porting on my manifold) and everything worked perfect. Computer even showed no faults. Thant to all, especially Jeff, for the advice. That being said, I have one last question. I want to run a warning...
  2. Coyote Alternator pulley misaligned

    Ford Modular Engine Roadster Builds
    Had my car running for about 1 hr engine run time, a couple miles of distance. Then on a particularly cold day, started having loud squealing/scraping noise. Did in idle, would disappear with blip throttle. Removed belt, noise gone. Took a close look at alignment of crank, water pump and...
  3. Alternator Opinions please

    Factory Five Roadsters
    I have been pricing alternators and noticed the 94 95 302 alternators are listed as 130 amp with internal regulator. This sounds better than a 93 rated at 75 amps and its about the same price! Will the 94 part work with the Ron Francis wire harness? What belt system do I need to buy? I...

  5. Who sells nice crossover pipes and alt brackets?

    Ford Modular Engine Roadster Builds
    I am converting my Mark VIII motor to run the 99 style Cobra intake manifold and I need a new alternator bracket that will work on it. I have seen one from Steeda but have not actually seen one on a motor. While I'm there, I also need to replace that nasty corroded coolant crossover pipe. Id...
  6. Passenger's side alternator bracket dimensions / design

    Factory Five Roadsters
    :icon23: Can somebody post dimensions, CAD file, or pdf for a passenger side alternator bracket? I am looking for bolt hole spacing and especially thickness of the bracket for a 5.0L engine. I want to use the turnbuckle style tensioner. I know there are plenty out there to purchase that...
