Re: Water Pump Re /Re

the international pump would be ideal but its $$ and takes some modification and gives you a coolant filter. a ford pump would be 2nd. then a napa one if your on a budget. you can rent the tool at most parts stores and you can bring it back and get most if not all your money back. or if you have some friends with a machine shop have them make you one

Re: Water Pump Re /Re

The Ford pump is like 250... how much more is International ? we pay 10-20 % more for the same parts here in the Great White North .....At least our money is the same now so I only have to consider shipping .
How much modification are we talking about ? Is there a write-up on the International pump installation ? I like the filter idea ...not much room in a Van engine bay as it is ...Thanks for the response

Re: Water Pump Re /Re

I paid $210 for a new International pump from Napa. There is a hose and couple of fittings you need to purchase along with the new filter but well worth the money in my opinion.

Re: Water Pump Re /Re

i went with the napa unit. Lifetime warranty so i don't mind spending a aft to replace it again if t goes. I also installed a coolant filter shortly after. If the pump goes again i will be getting rid of the factory fan and clutch and going electric. Thats allot of weight on the water pump or may change it sooner if i stumble across the parts cheep

This can be a good option if you have a fetish for changing water pumps. The NAPA one is nice cause its a lifetime warranty, but you may end up changing it every 2 years....

Thats why i plan on switching to electric fan at some point. That is a lot of weight hanging off the front of the water pump. Hoping with removing the fan and having the filter i should hopefully have no probs but if i do dosent take long to change out with air tools.
