What's in the Box

Info

Original Flathead water pumps have always suffered from unreliable bronze bushings and carbon seals. They almost always leaked and even Ford manuals warned mechanics not to tighten fan belts too tight. The excess slack allowed belts to slip and lose contact with the generator and water pump pulleys, causing more cooling and power problems.

Speedways completely new water pumps feature severe-duty roller and ball bearings, close tolerances and modular impellers to provide maximum flow and reduce cavitation. They also have modern ceramic seals on a heavy duty 3/4" shaft, making the assembly exceptionally strong and more efficient.

  • Ceramic seals on sturdy 3/4" shaft
  • High-flow modular impeller reduces cavitation
  • Gasket included
  • Passenger side pump includes threaded boss for heater hose connection
  • Driver side pump does not have heater hose connection

Fits 1949-1953 Ford cars and 1952-1953 Mercurys with 3/8" belt system. Also fits 1953 F-100 Pickups.

Flatheasd water pump

November 18, 2015
Works and fit fine, but the pulley did not match the picture or the original. If you're a detail person as am I, You might be disappointed. I was building this for a customer, and did not have the time to return it.
No, I would not recommend this product.

1949-53 Flathead Car Water Pump is right

May 04, 2014
Great upgraded quality products to replace the original Ford Flathead water pumps. Perfect fit bolted right on. One little tip if you have not replaced the water pumps before . There is one bolt inside the lower water outlet bolted to the block that is hard to see.
Yes, I recommend this product.

To use water pumps number 91015595 you would need to fabricate the necessary brackets and use the mounts number 91018025. More common customers and builders use pumps with the mounting flange number 91015592 or 91015593 along with cushion kit number 7209314 and a frame mount similar to number 1353274.
