The Char Lynn unit is the best way to go. I just finished putting one on my WD45 a couple of weeks ago. I used a Saginaw power steering pump as was used on Ford products from the mid 1970's to mid 1980's. This pump has it's own reservoir and the return line connection points in the right direction. I mounted the pump at the original generator mounting position using the original generator mounting bracket and a junk belt tensioning link from the pump to a bolt at the lower front of the engine. I relocated my alternator to an area above the right side of the block about on top of the head. You will have to get a dual groove crankshaft pulley. They are easy to come by as used or new repro parts. I got a repro from Wellerts. I drive the water pump from the front pulley groove and the power steering and alternator from the back groove. I like the location of the power steering pump as it gets a lot of cooling air from the fan and the fluid level is easy to check. I like the alternator location as it is not in the way of anything and does not get rained on or into any limbs and such. I felt that with the water pump being the only driven by its belt I could keep the belt tension low and hopefully preserve the life of the bearings.
