Buddy asked me what it's worth, it's a real one not an Gm performance parts one and I have no idea, any of you guys know what the value of a pump like this goes for? I just use the aftermarket and he wants me to put it on my car. I told him it might be worth something to someone.

I thought all big blocks used the same stock cast iron pump for that year ?
What identifies the pump as being from a L88 ?

I thought the WP was the same as other BB engines, too. Cast iron or aluminum?. Casting number and date of the pump will probably go a long ways to determining value.

Maybe ask in a Corvette Forum? I think a vette owner that's restoring a #'s matching car would want it but as far as value I wouldn't have a clue

I have to go and look at the numbers again, Tracy Performance has the exact same pump with the same ID numbers on it. The L88 pumps are all aluminum and I did look at my other 2 GM Performance ones and those have different part numbers. I will ask some of my the Vette guys, they are kind of shady as they will ask to buy it for like $25 and say it's not worth anything.

I can't find any evidence of an L88 specific water pump. Colvin's book lists the L88 receiving the same pump as any big block. Things may have changed with the over the counter later L88s??

Courtesy CRG:
I think it was only the ZL1 that got the aluminum pump.
In production form, the engine differed from Can-Am configuration. The dry-sump oil passage was eliminated and provision for a mechanical fuel pump added. Production tooling was developed for the block (castings #3946052/53), cylinder heads (#3946074), and intake manifold (#3933198). A new aluminum water pump was to be included (and at least one and perhaps two Camaros were built with it), but last minute testing raised reliability questions.
