So I've been reading quite a lot of posts and can't see where this has been answered. So hopefully someone can chime in or link me to a post where this is discussed. I have a '92 cougar 5.0 HO engine with the reverse rotation water pump, like in the attached picture. I want to retain the entire front serpentine belt system in order to use the more modern AC compressor and other accessories that came off the donor vehicle when this goes into my Mav. I know I have to swap to a front sump oil pan, but was hoping I could get some advice on where to drill out the timing cover from the '92 engine for the dipstick tube, and clear all the belts and pulleys. It does not have the boss like the older timing covers. The current one is sacrificial if I have to replace it anyway, so any ideas might be worth giving a try. Has anyone figured this out or does someone know of an aftermarket timing cover that has been modified for this application? I do have a standard rotation cover I bought used (pre-EFI, has the front dipstick tube hole), but it is definitely from an older generation of engine. Can this go on, find a reverse rotation pump and use my existing serpentine belt pulleys? Thanks in advance.
