    I love it.

    With manual hubs you will have no issues on the street.

    A 4.0L in LO range can break plenty.

    Just one of the three axle shaft's I've destroyed.

    Guess this should be part of every SAS but..

    I'm having problems with the power steering now. Pump stops working after hot, steering gets HARD as hell and I burp the throttle and get steering back.


    Went and got the saginaw pump yesterday.

    Got the pumps off today and there is NO way that it will fit the explorer bracket as is.

    So I put in a spare pump and tranny cooler for this weekend

    I really want/need the sag to work. Did I get a goofy year (mid 90's E150)? Do I need a different year 4.0 PS pump bracket?

    Oh yea took out the condenser out..... about 4" of mud and gunk between the 2 so.

    I'm going to use a Saginaw P-style too (but on a SOHC) once I get around to the steering. My thought is to just fab up some brackets to adapt the P-style to the original mounting holes on the engine block of the original TC-style pump. The only requirement is to line up the pump's pulley with the other pulleys on the block.

    My saginaw fit my 95 without any mods. I believe to was the heavy duty Cardone unit for a 79 F350.

    I was going to give you the link to a thread on rrorc I found a while back that gives part numbers for the correct style pump for our trucks, but it looks like you beat me there.
