Water Pump

Postby Paul Gill » 03 Mar 2017 17:35

Hello
Have just replaced the water pump on my V8 (2518) having bought it from Moss, after fitting it and trying to replace the pulley, I discovered the three tapped holes are M6 instead of 1/4 UNC, a tap can be run down the holes with it on the block, but far easier before fitting!
I'm sure there is a moral here!!!

Paul,

I had the same problem a few years back with a replacement pump from Clive Wheatley. I took the alternative way out of using three hex head M6 machine screws to secure the pulley and put the UNCs into the spares bin.
