underdrive pulley question

I just order a pair of steeda udp but when they arrive they don't say steeda anywhere on the pulleys. Its not a piggy back system and it came with steeda instructions and came with a sticker saying that this is sfi 18.1 certify. But i just want to make sure. Any thoughts?

Do you have any pics of them?

Do they look like the picture of the pulleys straight off the steeda website:

Oh ok then you should be good to go. Just make sure the water pump pulley is for your shorter shaft. I use to have the Steeda pulleys on my car. Now I am running BBK. See my pics.

Thunderbirds have the long shaft/nose. Isn't he putting these on his 1997 Thunderbird?

The easiest way is to use a breaker bar and pull your fuel pump fuse.

Put the breaker against the ground and then bump the starter that will break it fast.

I do it every time that way.

Then you have to use a harmonic balancer puller to pull the crank off and be sure when you put the crank pulley back on to use some black rtv on the key way or you will get a small oil leak there.

As close as you can get to 70 ft/lbs it will be hard to hold the motor from turn also.

The good thing is the engine turns in the direction that will keep the bolt from backing out.

i got the pulleys on except for the alt putting that on to day. Putting the breaker bar against the ground is a genius idea, bolt came right off very easy.

91bluecoupe if u weren't so far away id give you a big o hug. Thanks for all the help

Listen, and I am speaking from experience...

When you put that crank pulley on, and you torque it. After it's tight, leave the socket on and tap it with a hammer, then re-torque, tap it, re-torque, continue this until it doesn't re-torque anymore (fully tight and seated).

I didn't do this the first time and my trigger wheel shattered after running the car about a week. What a PITA to change that. So make sure to seat that crank pulley the FIRST time.

Yeah a few have had that problem but most get it torqued the first time. You can retorque any time.

I have had pulleys on my Mustang and my my Tbird and never had any problems.

don't mean to hijack but, i got a couple questions. i have some i need to install... about how long do they take to switch out? do they help any? most people say the 4.6 doesn't gain that much from u/d pulleys, but they help with gas mileage a little... are they worth the hassle?

U/D pullies not worth the cost.
Unless you buy them for really, really, cheap.

There has been hundreds of debates about are they worth it. This is how i feel about them anything you can add even only 5-10 hp is worth it plus a small boost in mpg.

Only take like 30 minutes for most to install.
