Water Pump

What mechanical aluminum water pump is the best for a street car?

67 chevelle malibu / SS/ custom

Currently undergoing a metal work to remove all rust, if I ever get there.

Cant decide on prostreet or cruiser with a 4 speed.

I have a Wieand on my engine. I actually painted it orange to look stock.

Brain, are you using the short or long style for the BBC?

Do you like it?

My car is just a street car and the Weiand price is reasonable.

Re: Water Pump

I like the Edelbrock high flow WP but I don't like the price,the Weiand pump might be close to the Edelbrock.If money isn't a problem go with the E-brock.

Re: Water Pump

I went with the Edelbrock high flow and it was leaking out of the weep hole brand new. I called Edelbrock service and they wanted me to send the pump to them so they could repair it.

I would've been happy to exchange it for a new one. Not happy to spend full amount, plus shipping and who knows when I would get it back, for a rebuilt pump.

I went with a wieand. I like it so far.

Re: Water Pump

I have been using Stewart pumps for over 20 years, their cast iron Stage 1 pumps work extremely well on a street car. They have aluminum ones that work even better. When you compare the cost of one vs how it performs, it is a great buy!

Re: Water Pump

Edlebrock unpainted. Car runs 180* or less at 80 air temp. At 85 air temp it might go to about 182*. Traffic or moving, it does not matter. Remember anything painted or chromed holds heat.
