The explorer front cover will not work with the factory belt drive and power steering layout, that's why the swap entails a 94/5 front cover.

You can however use that layout if you want, and you may find it quite desirable since the oil filter is readily accessible. You'd just need to modify the lower coolant hose (add a coupler and a 90* section) and make a custom power steering line to reach the higher mounted pump. I'm doing that with my 4V swap with an Aviator cover(same belt drive as explorer)
