LTD owners Alternator conversion question

Post by jwebfournow »

Hi all this question is for the LTD guys who have done the Poorboy conversion, how did you manage to deal with the small coolant line on the leftside in front of the timming cover, it seems to me that it will be in the way. I have already done a conversion on an 86 Aspencade, using a Geo Metro alt and a 3 rib belt. Getting ready to tear into the 85 LTD and saw the coolant line there. Hope someone has a good answer Thanks

Have done two conversions on '85 LTDs. The coolant hose you mention is not in the way. Good luck.
