    Hi

    I've got my electric fan ready to swap in, but for the life of me can't figure out how to delete the old hydraulic pump/pulley. Unlike you fancy v8 folks, this v6 doesn't play nice with a shorter belt (from the looks of it).

    2000 LS V6

    The only person I found in search that solved the issue hasn't been here in 5 years and didn't post pictures or part number :/

    Thanks all

    Since Ford used basically the same engine in the Taurus and Escape... why don't you take a look at those and see how things are routed. Might just require a bracket and/or pulley swap.

    Or a gen 2 V6 which is routed exactly the same other than the pump...
    IIRC they have a bracket and extra idler pulley at the top passenger corner to put the belt in the right shape

    That was 04_sport_LS that suggested the Escape/Taurus, but hey, nice find!
