Didn't know there were different lower outlets as well. Does their truck actually have duals?
Yeah it has duals.
I have an 01 350 with dual alts. It does not have the metal 90 on the bottom. The hose is longer and makes the same bend. Not sure why the difference, it follows the same path and doesn't interfere with the second alt., which is on the opposite side anyway. My other 7.3s have the pump as pictured above.
That is what I dont understand. If it routes the same why is there a difference? I mean I understand the top hose being different, but the bottom one?
Here is what I dont understand. The hose on the truck to begin with would not work with the waterpump with the metal 90 on it. So if all trucks(excluding dual alt.) come with the metal 90 and there is no routing issues, then the hose that everyone lists for the truck should work with the metal 90 right? Wrong. The hose I show would not work on this truck with the metal 90. That is a 22690 gates. Pictured below.
So I called ford and they list a different hose for a dual alt. That crosses to a 22434 Gates. Pictured below.
But you would think to use this part number you would need to use the straight metal outlet right?? Wrong, this hose worked with the 90 degree metal outlet. Why? I dont know or understand. And for future reference this is the other style metal outlet that apparently comes on trucks with dual alternators.
I ordered one from Ford yesterday just in case I needed it for the customer and if not to keep on the shelf for the future. The part number on it is 1c3z8592aa.
Hopefully this thread will help someone in the future or someone can make it more clear on the differences because honestly I'm still pretty dang confused
