Pulley Question

I have been hearing a lot about putting pullies on an MN12. I have not seen any on any sites. I have not seen any on ebay either, which has lead me to the following conclusions:

1. I am a moron, and have the searching skills of Ray Charles.
2. I am not looking on the correct sites.
3. These pulleies are off another vehicle.

So, with that in mind, can someone shed some light on this subject? I plan on installing an elec. fan in a month or so, and would like to get the pullies done as well. Thanks!

Everyday of my life is a constant fight, between wrong and right.

When there is no grass on the field, go around back and play in the mud.

www.rpm-mustangs.com has em. You're probably looking for pullies for the thunderbird. You will not find any this way. Look for pullies for the 94-98 v6 mustang.

Here are some ebay auctions.

roy, a bit of advice. most of the power gained comes from the crank pulley. the other pullies dont add much power, unless you really want to have a complete set. if you go with just the crank pulley, you will need a 96" long belt. check the classifieds at v6power.net, they sometimes have crank pullies for sale there.

Or sometimes a cougar owner will build a 4.4 stroked engine and blow it up, then sell you his ASP crank pulley for 25 bucks But that doesn't happen very often.

Thanks for the tip big mike. I was not sure if this was true with V6's. I know the crank pulley is all that is needed on 4cly.. I'll be on the lookout.

QUESTION: I want to get rid of the A/C compressor. How long is the stock belt, as opposed to the "96 long belt? Perhaps I can use the stock size belt, and dump the a/c condensor. Just a thought.

I considered this also, since all of my AC has been deleted except for the compressor. There is no way to just bypass the compressor. The belt will collide with another pulley. You CAN, however, contact Dan Newman and order an idler pulley that replaces the AC compressor. It's just a pulley with a bracket that bolts in to the compressor mounting holes. There's a pic of one somewhere I'll try and find it...since I don't sleep.

stock belt length is 98.5" if my memory serves me right.

These are Supercoupe accessory brackets, and they're obviously a little prettier than your average bracket. But that top left pulley is the AC delete pulley.

Pulley questions

Next question. How do I go about getting the delete a/c pulley?

Also, do stang GT pullies work on our cars? Saw on on an ebay link.

Contact Dan Newman for the delete pulley

No, GT pullies are for the 4.6 v8.

That goes double for the 3.8L, correct? At the risk of being repetitve, I do not want to miss anything.

Does what go double for the 3.8L? I don't really understand your question. Don't worry about being repetative, the only bad questions are the ones unasked.

I was talking about the Mustang GT pulleys. Do they also not work on MN12 3.8 L?

A mustang GT is a 4.6L v8. They will not work on any 3.8L ford. They will only work on 4.6L fords.
