Power Stroke Power Steering Bracket Closer
F8TE-10239-AB is the engine bracket that was on my 2003 Excursion and I think on 1999.5-2003 7.3L Powerstroke engines. The right photo shows the beginning of marking the bracket for grinding. You have a few places to check, and make sure the pump bolts in with no clearance issue or you will break something when you tighten it up. Photo on the left shows when bolted in the lip of the housing just nicks the bracket.
