I need a water pump for my SBC, be it a traditional belt-driven aluminum pump, or an electric. Are electrics good enough for street use? Good enough for a drag-week type event?
running a stewart warner brushless electric. It can be used as a sole unit to push water or as a 'booster' to your current running mechanical. This pump does a true 55gpm, basically it pumps a 5gal pale out in 5 seconds.And those running an electric on the street.
1. Running a thermostat or restrictor?
2. Toggle switch or Electric (or thermo) switch?
I never do anything to try to cool down between rounds. Leave the hood shut too. Just prefer to run it heat soaked, more consistent for me.Yeah, I think I'll pass on a $850 water pump.. thats crazy, haha..
I know mechanical is dead-reliable, just wondering if I could gain some flexibility (cooling between rounds) while maintaining reliability. I've always just run my electric fan between rounds, then start it up for 10-15 seconds to circulate the water.
Those of you running them, what brands?
