Installation Instructions for a 94 Bronco

".. bought my pump from advance auto for 45 bucks with a mil discount and 30 bucks for the core charge. They will take back any pump for the core refund. They didnt have it in stock but they shipped it to my house in two days and I got it in the mail a day after I ordered it. This thing is nice. Get the CARDONE!

I checked the fitting and everything is bolt in for a 5.0 1994 bronco with a/c. It even used the same high pressure line. It comes with the elbow as was stated before this is 100 percent bolt on.

Removed 4 bolts holding the cooling fan to the water pump and pulley.

Removed the pump the hard way. Used a large 3 jaw puller and broke the brittle pulley. I used a hammer to finish it off and unbolted it. Really was painless after that. I did have to make a run for a new pulley and I recommend buying a new 10 dollar pulley ahead of time for this reason.

the new pulley is pre greased and makes for an easier install, I was using just my hands at first but a vice makes it a lot easier

New saginaw pump note the red and black plastic cap on the high pressure adapter block on the back. This makes it bolt on

This is a 30 dollar loaner pulley kit from Oreillys, its refundable but i may keep it. Its cheaper than buying the ones off the shelf, they are 60 bucks for the set at the same Oreillys.

Put the new pulley in a vice and clamp the thing down. Use the rental tool to screw into the provided sleeve that came with the saginaw and tighten it till it starts pulling it through. dont use air tools that is one reason the first one broke.

Notice the threaded cap matches both pumps and lines and threads into both pumps. This is to show this pump is 100 percent bolt on, no mods or lines needed.

The pulley shown here mounted to my engine has the shaft pressed flush with the end. There is a gap behind it and could be pressed more but DONT DO IT. It needs to stay flush with the threaded sleeve when you press it on using the rental tool and vice.

Mount up the STOCK serpentine belt, a longer one is NOT needed and doesnt strain any of your bearings or components. 150 percent bolt on! NOTE: YOU WILL WANT TO BEND YOUR PRESSURE LINE JUST ABOVE THE PUMP RESERVOIR THAT GOES TO THE AC COMPRESSOR. IT WILL BEND UP JUST BE CAREFUL NOT TO KINK THE LINE, THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO REMOVE THE CAP AND CREATE ACCESS TO THE NEW SAG PUMP.

Going back to the comment made about pressing the pulley onto the sleeve, this is the gap you will have in the back, its machined so the pulley can sit back furthur but only make it flush on the face of the pulley as shown above.

All buttoned up, threw some new fluid in the pump, less than a half quart, and used a product off the shelf that stated it was for Saginaw, Honda, Ford, etc, etc. But marketing is key and it said Saginaw so I went all in. NOTE: HERE YOU CAN SEE HOW I ANGLED THE AC COMPRESSOR LINE GOING TO THE RADIATOR. I JUST SLOWLY BENT IT UP WHILE HOLDING THE LINE AGAINST THE AC COMPRESSOR.

Things to remember, get a 10 dollar pulley from Oreillys, part number is in the picture above. Have a good selection of hand tools and rent the specialty tool, its soo worth it. I was able to get my core charge back for my 94 pump at advance auto. Use teflon plumbers thread seal tape to make sure you have no leaks. Total cost for this mod was 60 bucks and some fluid!!!!!!! Took me an afternoon but that was with some auto parts store runs included for a different project.
