Default Water Pump

Looking for an original water pump rebuilder. Location not important. Any suggestions?


Thanks

I deduce from your post that you don't do mechanical work yourself.
I suggest you buy LKes Andrews' book and the parts to rebuild it yourself. You will feel good once it's done and more confident. They are REALLY simple things.

A very simple job if you take it slowly. You can send it to me and I'll do it for $150.

You can buy an original new one for less than $100 from Snyders.......I did and it's great.

Buy new lead packing rings and the rear brass bushing with the double lip seal, and rebuild it yourself. Easy as can be, and there are threads about doing it.

They are very easy to rebuild. Having said that, why not think about replacing with new leakless water pump. They are available from suppliers for under $150.00. Now you have solved another future problem.

Get a leakless one from James Rupert (California) and you can forget about it forever. He's found easily on Google.

Likely has what you need on the shelf ready to ship.
He is good at restoring originals.

Good Day!
