Eliminates cavitation at high RPM. THIS SALE IS FOR THE LONG VERSION- REVERSE RO TATION. This water pump has a cnc machined aluminum impeller.The rotational weight reduction is considerable. Most all other water pumps have a stamped steel or cast iron impeller. This water pump is considered high end street/strip grade. For those wanting a lower cost water pump see our other listings. Notice the outer housing on this water pump.
The chrome finish is overall very good. You may notice that in the crevices and corners the finish is not as smooth. This is only noticeable up close, and we know all of the chrome plated water pumps on the market to be as such.For those wanting a less expensive water pump, see our other listings for the polished or satin finish. Pictured below is a file photo of one of our non-polished water pumps with the back plate removed to expose the cnc machined aluminum impeller.
This is a far superior pump compared to those with stamped steel or cast iron impellers. This is an expensive upgrade, and well worth it, in our opinion. As mentioned this is just a file photo to show the aluminum impeller inside our pumps, not the actual pump. You will receive the correct Chevy water pump.The aluminum impeller in this water pump is designed to reduce rotational mass and dissipate heat at a faster rate, and that's a plus for any car. Here is a story to prove our point. We had just installed a 383 stroker engine in a 79 C-3 Corvette and had converted it from mechanical to electric fans and could not stop the car from running hotter than we were comfortable with. The temp would soar to 235 in as little as ten minutes. We then replaced the OEM cast iron water pump with one of our aluminum water pumps with the aluminum impeller. We knew that an aluminum water pump, especially one with an aluminum impeller, could reduce operating temps, and it certainly did reduce the engine temp by approx.
We now use this line of water pumps exclusively on all of our BBC and SBC turnkey engines we build. Most aluminum water pumps have stamped steel impellers or at best, machined iron impellers, and claim to be high volume. We have used other brands and styles of water pumps on stock engines that are not modified, and don't seem to have heating problems, but for vehicles with modified engines, this is the pump to run, and we proved it. This pump is half the weight of a cast iron water pump with no sacrifice in reliability.
There are no drawbacks to running this type pump, other than cost. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE MANY INFERIOR WATER PUMPS ON THE MARKET.
WE FEEL THIS ONE IS THE BEST AVAILABLE. IN YEARS PAST, WE HAVE SEEN INFERIOR PUMPS THAT BREAK OFF AT THE PUMP SHAFT, CAUSING SEVERE DAMAGE TO THE CAR. OUR PUMPS HAVE HAD NO SUCH FAILURES. BE SURE OF WHAT STYLE WATER PUMP YOU HAVE. On rare occasions we have had a few complaints of water seepage coming from the backplate.
We noticed on a very few, that the amount of sealant used on both sides of the gasket may have been insufficient. We strongly recommend removing the backplate, and coating each side of the gasket with a good quality sealant before installing the water pump on the engine. This is a very simple procedure. The complaints concerning this issue are few and far between. Other than this minor issue, these water pumps have been extremely reliable.
