Hey guys, I was wondering if the front timing case cover and water pump from my 55 264 will fit onto a 56 322? If so do I use the 264 pulley or do I use the 322 harmonic balancer?

But when I went to install it today, I could see from the top down view, that the pump did not mate correctly
I'm working on a 65 riviera that sat for 10 years. I got it started and the water pump started leaking. No big surprise there.

It looked more corroded than I would have expected. So, I created a lot of extra work for myself taking the timing cover off to extract the broken bolt. When I took out one timing cover bolt near the fuel pump, much to my surprise, antifreeze came pouring out. I felt that from the corosion I saw on t
