Not sure Rich but I will do some digging for you when I get to my dads house up north. Going to replace my wheel bearing on the passenger side rear on my 2002 Mercury Cougar. Turning out to be a good little car. I have less than $600 into it and that includes what I paid for it.
Oh, I am also replacing the fuel pump. It has been acting up and it is a part that commonly fails on these cars. They installed faulty pumps from the factory then had to recall them. I got unlucky it seems as the original owner apparently never bothered to get it replaced when they were offering to do it for free. :twisted:

Hopefully you find the info you are looking for. Good luck!
Peace.

Rich,
I've seen a few pictures of different configurations that folks have made and a couple videos of an 1100 and 250 pulling trailers. But for plans . . . that I haven't seen, sorry!
