What's in the Box

Info

Same great quality, now in show polished aluminum!

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 5/8" shaft, making the assembly exceptionally strong and more efficient.

Works with 5/8" belts. Includes mount gaskets.

Item Details

For 1949-1953 engines in 1949-1953 pickups or 1932-1948 cars.

This water pump will mount and fit the same as your 51 Merc with the exception that it uses the 5/8" wide belt compared to your narrow belts. Pulley is 2 3/4" from the pump mounting flange. The early pump also uses the 5/8" belt but pulley is only 1" from the pump mounting flange. To switch would require the correct lower pulley and generator pulley.

Would these be considered a short wide belt or the long shaft narrow belt pumps?

These water pumps are for the 5/8" wide belt commonly refereed to as the "wide belt" and this pump measures 2 3/4" from engine side of pulley to mounting flange.
