Hey guys, working on my 89 v8 5.8L bronco, my fist car...
I'm restoring the whole thing and needed some help. I need the bolt torque specs for the PS pump. My rear left light is not working either and the alternator securing bolt on the inside is loose. Anything helps :)

Which bolts are you talking about - the bolts securing the bracket to the head or the pump to the bracket? The bolts holding the bracket to the head are 1/2” bolts and probably 6” long, so I wouldn’t go more than about 60 ft-lb. The bolts holding the pump to the bracket are probably 3/8” bolts about 1.5” long, but I wouldn’t torque those down too hard, maybe 25 ft-lb.

These are by no means Ford factory torque specs, just my estimation. Honestly, I’ve had my pump and bracket off several times and I’ve never properly torqued them down with a torque wrench - just made it nice and snug with a standard 3/8 drive ratchet and never had a problem.
