Rebuilding 27 Standard water pump.

Recommended Posts

Just found an old water pump in my spare parts. Shaft seems to push in and out, is this normal off the engine or is something worn. will take apart Tuesday.

Yes mine moves a little in and out, even after being rebuilt. Rightly or wrongly I've installed it in the car with a little pressure on the shaft to keep the shaft in the rear bush in the back plate

26-25 Buick,

Thanks will do it after rebuilding. Might have to get kit from Bob's. Shaft and bushings are bad, gland nut out of round ans impellar pitted bad.
