Reverse rotation water pump

Any of you guys running a reverse rotation water pump. My March Styletrac serpentine belt system came with one (long pump). I'm having a hell of time finding a lower radiator hose to fit since the water pump has a 1 1/2" outlet and the radiator is 1 3/4". Anybody find a molded hose that fits this application?

Re: Reverse rotation water pump

Some have had luck by sitting the hose in boiling water for a few minutes and slipping it over after it becomes plyable. (have it in water beside the car) Use soap as a lubricant as an added measure to slip over). This did not always work so others just added a sleeve and spliced into the hose adding a piece of larger diameter hose to accomodate the radiator fitting.

Also send an email to march and ask for their recommendation....one would think they would have the answer?

Re: Reverse rotation water pump

You can just get a hose that fits the radiator and put a sleeve on the waterpump which will increase the diameter. Most of those little hose end kits that you can get a Summit have several sleeves in them for just such a thing. Or if you have a piece of 1-1/2" hose laying around you can make you own. Just cut a piece off it, slide it on the water pump, then put your 1-3/4" hose on top of it and clamp it.

You're welcome, but I just pretty much repeated what Chris said in different words.
