BC Broncos has a ton of very useful parts for doing a serpentine swap and/or 5.0L efi install. I opted to use the bi-directional waterpump, which actually will give you a bit more trouble lining up pullies. If you have a complete 5.0L I would suggest to use all the factory stuff and then just get th...

Or is there another P/S pump from another vehicle that does a good job of running both hydroboost brakes and power steering for big tires?

Chevy P/S pump?

Is it possible to adapt a stock serpentine belt Chevy P/S (from a junkyard) pump to fit the Ford 5.0 serpentine bracket. Or would I have to buy something like this from Summit Racing?

I just pulled my main tank and cleaned it not too long ago, and I think the medium sized port is a vent to allow tank vapors to escape above the gas filler nozzle when you are gassing up. I guess it helps to keep from building up gas fumes that could cause a fire/explosion. Most newer cars have them...

Engine mounts...

A few years ago, All of the rubber bushings on my Bronco were changed over to polyurethane, except the engine mounts. For some unknown reason, they weren't in the kit. Are these engine mounts from WH good, or does somebody else make them cheaper/better? http://www.wildhorses4x4.com/product/Extreme_M...
