Ford 4.6 & 5.4 DOHC Idler Bracket


 Product Description

This Idler bracket kit was designed to assist custom car builders and kitcar builders eliminate the factory power steering pump from Ford’s 4.6 L and 5.4 L DOHC Modular motor. 

We found that most people building custom cars, Hotrods, Kitcars or even Race cars often struggle to fit these engines into the required space and find themselves wishing to remove the Power Steering Pump.  This is not so easy as it effects how the serpentine belts runs around all the pulleys to maintain the correct contact patch / belt engagement to avoid belt slippage.

Additionally some builders do not require the car to be fitted with power steering such as in the case for most replica GT40’s.  The common approach taken by most builders for this scenario is to leave the P/S Pump in place and just block off all the lines / ports.  As the pump no longer flows the oil around and is no longer topped up from a separate reservoir eventually the oil will run dry and the pump will seize.  When they seize the shafts can snap and send the pulley flying off into the engine bay causing lots of damage.

Real Steel Group has found a suitable solution to both of the above problems by designing a Lightweight Billet Alloy bracket that bolts up to the factory pump location which then allows the use of a much smaller idler pulley.  This produces a much smaller and compact design without altering the general serpentine belt path.

The bracket is machined from 6061 Billet and comes in a raw machine finish but can be easily polished to a high lustre. 

The Kit comes with

  • 6061 Billet Alloy Bracket
  • New idler pulley, bearing and bolt
  • New revised length serpentine belt

The kit has been designed for the end user to use the existing alignment dowels and bolts once removed from the factory pump setup.
