Q & A

What's in the Box

Speedway Short Aluminum water pumps flow 35 gallons per minute at 4,000 RPM, with minimal cavitation and proportionally increased flow rates at 5,000 RPM and above. Equalized water flow distribution and pressure-balanced water passages minimize internal engine hot-spots making these pumps an excellent alternative for not only light duty racing, but also marine, trucks, towing, and motorhome applications. Cruisers and hot rodders will appreciate the improved cooling at low speeds.

"Short" style pumps came on all factory small block V8s from 1955 to 1968. However, this pump will fit all S/B Chevys up to 1985.

Notes

  1. Not to be used on engines that exceed 5500 rpm. It is better suited to street use than serious racing use. 
  2. This pump does not have a set screw to positively retain the hub like a race pump.

Packaging is not good

October 21, 2015
This pump looks pretty good. I have not finished my build yet so I cannot say how well it operates. I will say that the packaging from the manufacturer is terrible and leaves the pump very unprotected in the box. I had to send the forst one back as it incurred damage during shipping due to the lousy packaging. If you get one be sure to inspect very carefully!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Red Line 80204 Water Wetter Coolant Additive
(Part #91015709)
                        

Red Line Water Wetter Super Coolant additive is a unique wetting agent which reduces coolant temperatures by as much as 20° F. This is a liquid coolant treatment product which is designed to be added to solutions of antifreeze and water to help improve the heat transfer properties of glycol-based antifreeze. This liquid product can be used to provide rust and corrosion protection in plain water for racing engines, which provides much better heat transfer properties than glycol-based antifreeze. Improves the ability of coolant to wet heat transfer surfaces by 50%.

  • Reduces or eliminates bubbles that form on hot metal surfaces to reduce coolant temperatures by up to 20°
  • Superior heat transfer properties compared to glycol-based antifreeze
  • Compatible with new or used antifreeze (including DEX-COOL and long-life versions) to improve the heat transfer of ethylene and propylene glycol systems
  • Improves heat transfer and reduces cylinder head temperature
  • Designed for use with all modern aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze cooling systems
  • Cleans and lubricates water pump seals
  • Reduces cavitation and complexes with hard water to reduce scaling
  • Does not lower cooling system below the thermostatically-controlled temperature
  • 12 fl. oz. bottle treats 12-20 quarts
