hey guys i just got done swapping out a 460 for a 7.3l powerstroke in my tow truck. its a 1997 f450 with a 7.3 diesel. the only thing i have yet to figure out is to mount the hydraulic pump. its belt driven on the engine. anyone have any ideas on how to mount it? it used a pulley that takes 2 normal belts (non serpentine) but the truck is a serpentine setup. anyone ever mount hydraulic pumps on one? pictures are helpful. thanks
what about geting a pump to sit where the a/c pump goes? i know they are out there i just don't know who makes them. The Original Flatbed Bale Handler last i checked. for the "hydra bed" they use a belt driven hydraulic pump.
i can put it where the ac goes but i still need the ac its way too hot here living in a truck without ac all day. and i have a place to mount the pump.but all the clutch pto pumps use a dual v groove 1/2" belt pulley. the truck is a serpentine. so i need to find a combination pulley that can still run a serpentine on the crank or another pulley but have v grooves in front of the serp belt
that still doesnt achieve what im trying to explain. the truck runs a serpentine and the hydraulic pump runs dual v grooves. i cant just throw the hydraulic pump in there and have the vgroove pulley work with a serpentine setup
i found a pulley on broncoair.com for the powersteering pulley its a serpentine and a single v groove but that should be fine if that belt slips then i got another problem but it shouldnt, most people go the same route with an air compressor setup
