Late Model 1979-New Ford Mustangs

Would changing from a v-belt to a serpetine belt on an 87 mustang make the water pump run backward?

Depends on how you ran the belt. On a V belt, looking at the

front of the motor, the water pump would be turning clockwise. If

on the serpentine you ran under the water pumppully and are running

on the back side of the belt as some do, then the pump would be

turning counter clockwise and yes, running backwards.
