Serpentine conversion help

Ok, so I purchased a serpentine conversion from an Explorer. The kit is supposed to be complete but the box it was in was beat to shit by the post office. I have attached some pictures of what I received. Does this look complete or am I missing parts? I know that the ac pump and alternator are not here because I plan on buying a new alternator and dont plan on using an ac pump for ac or on board air. What about other parts that I need. I have the stock radiator, so do I need a new one? Will spacing be an issue? My plan is to have/pay someone to help me with the install so that it is done correctly and fairly timely since my Bronco has been down awhile. Any help is appreciated.

I can sure take it apart like a pro...it's the putting it back together that's problematic.

PS pump is missing as well as all the bolts. Look in the tech article for the bolt sizes and any other questions.

Sorry should have mentioned the bolts were sent. This is for my 351w and was supposed to be complete so I wouldn't need anything.

Hahaha....yes. It is disappointing that I am missing stuff. What about the harmonic balancer?

The balancer is there. You will need to have it rebalanced for the 351.

And the alternator is missing. But, hey, you get to bypass the part where you try to make the old PS pump and alternator work and just get new ones from the get go. Saves a lot of time.

Perfect thanks. Now I will have to start a thread to find someone who wants to take on the task of coming to help for some extra money. Any ideas on what the cost for someone to install this runs...with me looking over their shoulder and helping so I can learn?

other option is to get a billet crank pulley from driven auto parts, may be cheaper or about the same as having the exploder balancer re-balanced. i don't see a power steering pump either.

Read this three or four times and then get to it!

'When my Bronco is finished' is only a hypothetical statement.

What is the remanant of the high pressure ps line hooked to? It seems to be in the same area as the feed line from the reservoir, but it doesn't make sense that the seller would remove the pulley if the pump is there. It's hard to tell in the pics...

Help me out..is that the one coming off the metal tubing? It's not connected to anything. Looks like it was cut on the other side.

I got all of this from a seller on here but like I said, it's likely that stuff fell out in transit. He said the first time he sent it out that it came back to him in bad shape so he had to repackage and resend. I think the post office dragged it behind there truck for a couple of miles before I got it.

Anyone know anyone good with this type of conversion in the Santa Clarita Valley who might be able to help me with this mess for a few bucks for their troubles?

Yes, cut on one end(the rubber hose end) and male threaded fitting on the other. That is the high pressure line coming out of the ps pump.

If you have basic mechanical skills, doing the swap is pretty straight forward if you read and understand the tech article linked in a prior post.
