ok here is the problem. i just got my crank and water pump pulleys, the crank one went on just fine but when i went to put the water pump one on i would not work. the pulley rubs on the water pump and wont go on all of the way. what is the problem here?? should there be a spacer between the water pump and the pulley and if so how does the fan fit on the locater?? this is a 69 350
I think you might have the wrong pulley for the water pump. I got a couple and one of the ones I have does the same thing. You need it to be not so wide, a shorter nose cone if that makes sence. Good Luck.
so where would i go about finding a pulley with the smaller nose cone?? i took my brand new chrome pulley to the junk yard and was willing to part with it for one that will fit and they still could not find one. it is a remaned water pump and i got it from napa. now i am also woried that it will not fit in the engine bay with the fan and all on too. so where can i find the smaller nose cone pulley??
the problem was i didnt have an old pump to have rebuilt. i got a new pump from autozone and it was the right one. but now napa wont take the other one back because i painted it already. so im out the money for the pump anyway.
