Good problem solver

February 18, 2015
I bought this riser kit because I'm putting a small block chev in a 28 Model A, and the fan position is so low it almost hit the lower hose. I don't like electric fans on traditional rods, so the answer was to use the Zips riser to get it up about 5 inches. Worked perfect! I Don't expect any problems, although I haven't run it yet. Brackets are a little hokey, but they work. Good problem solver.
Pros:
  • moves fan up
Cons:
  • hokey brackets
Yes, I recommend this product.

Where's the directions?

March 28, 2012
The water pump riser serves its purpose perfectly and looks great. The accessories that came with the water pump riser are subpar. The brackets were pitted and tarnished, the spacers were very light weight and where are legible directions?
Pros:
  • Riser fits perfect
Yes, I recommend this product.

What is the finish on the riser? Does it come in a polished or chrome plated option? I am using a crate small block chevy in my truck. The center of the pump shaft now lies in the lower 1/3 of the radiator and this kit will solve my cooling problems. I know I can get a Tuff Stuff chrome plated water pump for this installation but the alternator and air-conditioning compressor are all polished or plated and I would like to stick with this theme.

Mine came rough cast aluminum. I'm sure you could polish it if you want to put the time in.

This riser is cast aluminum. Sorry we do not offer it in a polished or chrome plated version. It could certainly be polished if a person wanted that look.

From the block surface out with the Zips riser and suggested pump the fan hub face is 5 5/8” from the block which is suggested dimension for the short small block water pump.
