How did you mate the cogged water pump pulley to the 5.0 Coyote water pump ?

There are many electric water pump alternatives for the Coyote engine from Meziere, Ford Racing, Accufab and others for NA and blown engines.

Alan,
Thanks. We machined an aluminium hub with several counter bored holes to bolt to the OEM water pump drive flange, then we bolted the plastic drive pulley over that in a separate set of threaded holes. The bracket to hold the electric motor is an extended / modified Mr. Gasket bracket. I have already fabricated 5 of these set-ups for various Coyote installs. If this keeps up at some point I will have to have the brackets water jetted.

What classes will the car fit? Iam currently building a 2010 352CJ SS/GT car in the same body style you have and trying to figure out the weight breaks.

Thanks Kirk

Thanks Kirk
Depending on what year you claim the weight may vary slightly. But as an example for a 1996 Mustang you have the following models and shipping weights:
Coupe 2 Dr - 2943
Convertible 2 Dr GT - 3346
Coupe 2 Dr GT - 3150
Coupe D Dr Cobra R - 3265

Divide your factored horsepower by the shipping weght for the model you have and that will determine the "natural" class. You can go up or down one class. Nick Morris has an SN95 Mustang with a 352CJ engine and it runs in FGT/J.

The Classification Guide is found at http://www.nhraracer.com/content/gen...635&zoneid=132.

You can also sign up for Dwight Southerland's website http://www.classracerinfo.com which will guide you through selecting a class.

If you go into the Nhra classification guide, the shipping weights are to the far right of each body style. They are further right than the class weight breaks for each engine.
