I have a 1964 Lemans Convertible I am dropping a bored and stroked 400 into.I will be getting a new radiator and fan set up and am wondering if there are any preferred brand of water pumps?Thanks for any help.Peter
I would go to a NAPA store to get one and then MAKE SURE!!! the divider plate is set to at most 0.050 from the impeller. You would not believe how many "hot running 400s" have fallen prey to this one overlooked adjustment.
"If programmers were architects a single woodpecker could wreck civilization."
thanksi have read about how important that adjustment is.are you saying with this critical adjustment all water pumps are created equal?i would like to put one in that is made in the good ole usa though.thanks again
BTDT (Been there done that)Edelbrock WP - made in USA (or so they say)Then spend the time & effort to massage the divider plate to 0.040" to 0.050" of the impellerIt's the only way to make the pump maintain a decent flow pressure & rate for a beefed up engine 2for skool(but it's still a work in progress)
I know, it's not red~~How may I serve you?Boiled, Deep Fried, or Flambe'?
