Hey guys, putting my motor back to gather after replacing some valve seals. I absolutely hate the stock brackets/pulleys. Has anyone ran one of CVF Racing's kits? I was told by one of their reps that I'll need to change my timing cover to a fox style because of the water pump rotation. Do the fox timing covers have the same bolt patterns as the 94/95's? I've seen this conversion mentioned but nothing specific about what is needed to do it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can use the timing cover. Same bolt pattern.

I'd be interested to know I'd there's some way to adapt any of those to fit my 351m? If the pulleys would just fit my crank, alternator, water pump,and power steering I could probably find a belt that's close enough to get an adjustment out if it..

the water pump rotation is different?

Yes. 94-95 mustang 5.0’s used a reverse flow water pump due to the design of the accessory brackets and radiator setup.

I’m not too familiar with the m block. I’d have to do some digging.

Oooh crap... Didn't think about the reverse water flow pump... I've seen it done on a 460 in a 79 pickup but they used 2 belts on it.. I'll have to do more research on it.. just a thought anyhoo!!

You can’t use anything from the 94-95 accessories. The 351m which is basically a destroked 400m is considered a big block based on the 385. Uses the big block bellhousing and a totally different front assembly. On your motor the timing is recessed into the front of the block where the Windsor’s have the timing set mounted to the face of the block.
