Yes. The hoses are running up front, I am not able to
properly investigate if there is a rack up front, cause
the rear of the van is way up on blocks to swap engines,
but I can't imagine why else there is a ps pump.
Although a hydraulic winch would be cool.
So here is the question. Should I change out the
alternator bracket and double up the water pump pulley to
maintain the ps pump, or just disconnect it. I was
originally thinking of doing this, but it seems
unnecessary, as I have everything changed over now and
checked out by a friend of mine. As long as I plug the
rack, I assume there should be no damage or harm to run
it armstrong as originally designed.
