440 water pump
« on: February 10, 2012 - 12:48:30 PM »
The 440 I'm going to be picking up is from a motorhome, so the water pump has the inlet/outlet on the top and the passenger side. I'm just curious, but couldn't I use that water pump so I don't have to change the 26" inch rad I have for a big block one? I'm cheap so I'm trying to keep costs to a minimum.

I'm using a 440 source passenger side outlet on mine with no issues!

Thanks. That's going to save me a few bucks to put towards a cam.

I stopped by my engine Guy today since he told me it would be apart. It turns ou t that there's already been a little work done on it in the way of balancing and blueprinting. It also had the super thin head gaskets on it. Not sure what cam was in it though. All the marks we could find where 11 454 between the first lobe and the end. He said everything looks good inside which is good news for me.
