All I needed was a double groove water pump pulley to match up with the two forward grooves of my OEM three groove (has ps also) balancer pulley. do you think Ford, or aftermarket, makes such a thing? He!! no. that would just be too easy, so I cut one "groove" off of a chrome pulley I had laying around and welded it onto the existing single groove pulley that was on the car…. walla. the perfect pulley.
This is only the second Ford I've every owned…… and the more I work on it, the more clearly I remember why that is.

Yep, I've done the same, or even stacked pulleys under each other to make up multiples. But there's also the Chevy optional engine so many Ford owners use! I opted for that in my '63 Falcon.

matts37chev Don't make me start counting, I'm in denial
(Plus my wife might find the list and realize how much junk is actually laying around our house!)
I think she wears blinders most of the time.

silentpoet Wednesday I pulled the clutch master cylinder and line from my truck and put it in a vise. Was hoping I could mess around with the line and fix the problems. No go. So today after work I get to go buy a new line at Oreilly's and hope I can fix my clutch.

Reason being Mom's car has crapped out. A 2007 dodge caliber apparently is good for alternators going bad. It was just the ADP pulley noise, but wednesday the battery light came on, so I assume it is now time to replace the alternator. When the money is there to buy a new one. Been looking up the job, and it looks like fun a nice way to spend a day off.

The truck is hopefully a cheaper/easier fix. I am really hoping to not need to replace the slave cylinder. The truck is a 4wd so I would also get to pull the transfer case too. I know the line is bad, so hopefully that is it.

SO my Friday evening plans include bench bleeding the master cylinder and line. Then reinstall and pray it all works. May have to bleed the slave some too, but I am hoping that is it.

No big deal to me. It cost my neighbor $100 in gas but he saved 12.5k by not buying a car with poor metal work. He's happy I went with and told him what it is.
