1993 Ford E-250 Q&A
1993 Ford E-250 Question: Surpentine belt froze up, Van died. Then engine wouldn't restart.
I took off belt and everything turned freely except the air pump pulley. Van restarted w/o belt but then battery died because the alternator wasn't being turned and electric fuel pump was failing also because of low battery. Do you think if I change out air pump it will make that pulley free up again? - J9Johnson
Yes it should and make sure you replace the belt. While doing work charge the battery so you do not overwork the alternator when restart. Alternators are designed to maintain a charge and keep ignition circuits and accessory circuits up not to be battery chargers - raiderron
