Waterpump rebuild kit

Anyone have a source for a waterpump rebuild kit? The disc that the fan mounts to in particular. Thanks

Re: Waterpump rebuild kit

Mark, I used to do this at our GM dealership , loooonnnggg ago. No one that I know now does this. But there is a man here in the Lubbock area, an old timer, that I heard of that is doing this for a living. Last I heard he had all the pump bearing assemblies and impellors to press into a the orginal housing. It was easy to do but if you did not have the correct plates and press equiptment, you would be likely to break the housings.

I presume you are trying to maintain your factory housing?

I have gone to a Stewart pump as they are the only people that know what a closed or open impeller is and does. In hardship cases , I have attached the FlowKooler disc, to make my over counter open impeller pump , closed.

Re: Waterpump rebuild kit

Check out this site. It is easy to break the water pump housing if not done right.

Re: Waterpump rebuild kit

Thanks for the responses guys. I've got an original GM pump that only needs a new disc that the fan bolts to, other than that it's like new. Unfortunately I don't see the disc in those kits. Figures.

Re: Waterpump rebuild kit

Mark, just buy a junk one and swap discs (you need a press). Just beware, there are a couple of different ones (multiple bolt holes) and the shaft sizes changed in the later years.

Re: Waterpump rebuild kit

Thanks Kevin. Looks like that's the easiest fix. I was hoping loose waterpump parts were more available.

Hey Don, wanna stop by this weekend and rebuild my pump?

Even changing out fan hub on shaft, you will need to open up and support back side of bearing assy. Not a simple job if you dont have all the tools . Might be better off , letting Arthur rebuild the whole thing and make sure you have the enclosed impeller and be done with it.

I see what you mean. Sounds like some good advice. Pressing the old disc off seems straightforward enough but putting the new one on would be a different animal. Thanks

I'll have to check those casting numbers listed. Anyone know if short and early long pumps used the same internals?

Supposed to be the same, just differant shaft lengths and depths. Some of the newer bearing assys have the larger shaft id. Just need to know what you got, for street car , it dont matter.
