5.0 power steering pump conversion

Does anyone know of a power steering pump bracket that I can use on a f150 5.0? I have seen a kit for sale that is advertised as fitting the 5.0 mustang engine, do they share the same accessory pulley system? Also I would like to keep the air conditioning pump if possible. I am planning a 2011+ 5.0 swap into a 1974 ford.

Another question- do all 2011 to 2017 5.0 f150 engines share the same accessory / pulley system or were there changes?

Thanks!

Thumbs up Coyote PS conversion

I have 2nd generation Coyote crate package. I installed the Power BY The Hour kit. It mounts the pump low on the left side and the alternator high, reversed on the right. It takes some cutting of the timing cover and you have to use the alternator from a Mustang Cobra, that is the only one that can be used. Not cheap but a really good conversion. Around $1200. For everything including the alternator that has to be purchased from Ford.
Hope this helps, Kenny

After adding up the costs of all of the things for a modern 5.0 swap, I went over to the dark side. 2015 chevy 5.3 in my F250. Low mileage engine was $1500, power steering conversion kit was 200.

I'm putting a 2017 coyote in to my 1956 f100 and i was going to use a vintage air kit. But couldn't get it to work because of the Edelbrock supercharged. Over here vintage air kits are like $2700 for power steering and ac. Anyway for the power steering i went with a holden astra power steering pump which i can get for a $150 at the wrecker

Power steering.

Have you given any thought to a non power steering rack. I would have done it that way but my wife likes the truck and wants to drive it also. Too bad that the AC conversion is that expensive “Down Under”.

Power steering

Back in 1974 when I installed a 460 in my 68 it had a 4 speed and manual steering. Of course the wife complained but she still drove it. Now that we are in our 70s, well, you get the idea.
