DESCRIPTION: The Edelbrock aluminum water pump is a heavy duty water pump for both street and racing applications. The pump is externally the same as original equipment pumps to provide compatibility with all accessories and pulleys. It offers weight savings along with increased durability and cooling potential.
Incorrect alignment or an unbalanced condition puts excessive strain on the pump's shaft and/or bearing and will result in early failure of the shaft and/or bearing. The balance of the assembly depends primarily upon the concentricity of the fan clutch and spacers with the pump shaft. Concentricity is not assured when universal type clutches or spacers are used. Universal fan clutches and spacers have a 3/4" pilot hole, so an adapter must be used when installing a water pump with a 5/8" shaft. This adapter bushing is supplied with the unit. These adapter bushings add to the machine tolerances of the assembly, so special care must be taken to maintain concentricity with the shaft and the fan clutch. Failure to do so will void warranty.
