Recommended Posts

Have a 72 Cutlass 350, engine casting #395558 (original??), new water pump is too long and pulley will not line up with harmonic balancer pulley, etc. trashed old water pump too early. Everyone says only one pump for this car. Current (wrong) pump measures 5.75" from face to top of pulley, seems 0.5" to long. Anyone know if there was a shorter style pump made. Car is non A/C. Thanks.

"Everyone" is wrong. There are several differences in Olds water pumps depending on application. And you've hit on one- the non-a/c pump is indeed about 1/2" shorter than the a/c pump. <P>Try a NAPA or other locally owned store, or one that handles AC-Delco reman parts. The chains are notorious for getting stuff like this wrong. Find someone who knows how to use a parts book and doesn't rely totally on a computer.<P>As a last resort you may have to go thru somewhere like Fusick or Kanter which will be expensive but will get you the correct part.<p>[ 05-06-2002: Message edited by: rocketraider ]
