    Do you have a reverse or clockwise rotation H2O pump, as it appears your belt is on incorrect for the 5.0 water pump. Look at the diagrams I posted earlier in the thread. You're basically running the bottom left setup.

    I have no idea. That is the setup and was the set up when I bought the car.

    My water pump is working, because my car doesn't overheat and coolant still flows out....how do I know? The coolant line to the thermostat popped off once and I ended up spraying coolant everywhere in a parkinglot....

    It seems I should relocate my PS pump up..or has it been already moved?... and get a belt tensioner....
