New water pump for 1968 to 1970 1600 pushrod engine.

Post by fairladyproducts.com »

Up for sale is a brand new water pump with a cast impeller. The pump has been modified to run on a 68-70 engine with the original crankshaft pulley. The modification was to replace the fan pulley flange with one that is correct for the car. The replacement flange is in the correct location for proper belt alignment. The exchange was done at an automotive machine shop that has been in business for more than 30 years.

In the rare instance that an original fan clutch is on the original pump it will be necessary to use a fan spacer with this pump.

The price is $190.00 with core exchange.

There have been comments made about how bad it is to modify a new pump by exchanging one static part with another. The truth is that many of these pumps are in service with no problems. Negative comments are made to demean others products.

Recently posted are comments from someone that sells water pumps. He said that it is low budget and cheap to reuse a flange from a used pump and that those that do not follow shaft/flange fitting procedures that professional "Water" rebuilders use for proper interference fit.
You may be interested to know that this place sold U-20 camshaft sprockets that would not fit standard camshafts. It is unlikely that he understood the reason for not fitting. One of these defective parts was sold to a National Champion autocross racer.

Another situation was their firewall brace copy where they couldn't get a tight fit between the bolt and the brace body. First they changed the bracket so the bolt threads were smashed during assembly. Picture of brace with smashed threads is available. Then since they couldn't figure out how the original was done they knurled the bolt to keep it from spinning. This is a sure sign that the non-engineer doesn't understand proper press fit interference.
