It switches to the other side, but there are ways around that.

If I'm not mistaken there were not very many Fords that used the passenger side inlet for the water pump that the Broncos used. In fact, it wasn't that long ago that some aftermarket radiator companies used to call the opposite the "Ford" orientation and what we had originally as the "GM" orientation for the radiators themselves.

The Explorer front drive system is the last hurrah for the Windsor stuff and is the best. But it uses pretty much everything unique. Timing cover, alternator, water pump, power steering pump, damper, all were unique to the Explorer only if I'm not mistaken.
The later trucks used a similar power steering pump, but there were variations and I don't think they were the exact setup as the Explorer.

In other words, it's all Explorer and you pretty much don't use anything original from the old engines, or any other drive system. Other than the modified dampers the others were talking about.
