I know of one for the Duratec 3.0 but I doubt that would fit. Sorry.

To supplement the surp. drive belt, an additional pulley was bolted onto the end of the 2.9L harmonic balancer - the bolts screwed into the holes for a puller. What it was off of, I have no clue... But that's the fun in something like this, discovering what works and designing your own stuff.

Ultimately, I had a plan for a custom adapter to bolt the SC right onto the 2.9L, but ended up selling what I had and changed streams.

Edit:
Finding and mounting one isn't even really the hard part - engine management is a big player on this...

man think ive seen something similar to what your talking about but ive seen this may only be good for raceing and not a daily driver,due to extra pully throwing out your crank berrings,n seals,or even bending,n breaking crank shaft, aha! eureka lolz my balancer pully has extra belt luke from factory pre-orderd just for a sc wow which is rare for mid 80's rangers some older v8's were given these bigger pulleys for optional later dealership install of sc's but thats no longer done.Man i give ya a big thanks dude for this my ranger was already manufactured to handle a super charger i didn't know what that extra belt luke was for now i do there is even extra factory bolt holes on engine and head on passenger side,wonder if ford still has spec's for this extra power add on,if they do hell my lil'bullsnake would be a bad little bitch! with a ford spec'ed super charger n nice to know my ranger is rarer than what just i think thanks again bro later.
