SOURCE: 1995 ford thunderbird4.6 engine running hot. changed water pump,

Either your head gaskets are bad, or your radiator is bad. If there is no coolant, or muck on your oil dipstick, then it is your radiator. Replace it and your issue will cease. It's worth the expense to buy a "new" one. Used may be good for a week, a month, or 2 years; you never know.

SOURCE: can a 96 Ford Windstar Air Conditioner Compressor Pump Fit in a 98 Windstar?

The compressor is the same but it may have a different pulley and the plug may be indexed on the wrong side. If you have a set of snap ring pliers you can put your coil and pulley on that compressor or it may already be the same ones just make sure you put the plug where it is on your original compressor.

This is not an easy job. If you know what your doing it can take 2 hours minimum. Have to get it from under the vehicle if you don't have a hoist don't bother.

I don't know that car in detail, but it appears that there is one belt, driven of course from the crankshaft, driving the A/C, alternator, power steering, and the water pump. It also has an idler pulley and a tensioner pulley. Quite a belting.
