Aussie water pump?
« on: October 20, 2017, 03:49:54 PM »
Are there any australian car water pumps with standard rotation and RH outlet that will fit my EF roller motor & timing case?

I'll only be running an alternator, so I don't want to run a serpentine system with the stock reverse rotation pump.



Or, has anyone got an old style timing cover lying around before I go and buy one to simplify everything?

I doubt you'll find a water pump that has the right pulley offset for your crank pulley. I mean, it might be out there, but it will be hard to find the info on it. For reference and to perhaps aid your search, the ef serpentine is the same as the US 94/95 serpentine systems. So if you ever want info on it you'll find it on US based forums.

I would keep your passenger side bracket which has the alternator, idler pulley and tensioner, then just find a way of adding a pulley to the drivers side and get rid of everything else on that side.

Like in the picture(this is not an EF setup but explains what I meant)

Actually I just looked at mine and found a way you can do it with minimal fuss.

As per the picture, all you have to do is replace the smooth idler pulley with a 6 grooved one, and then re-route the belt with a shorter one. That will allow you to get rid of the lower pulley under the alternator, the alternator and the power steering.

The pulley with the arrow is the one you have to changed to a ribbed one as the belt will go over it now.
Something like this should be fine

The yanks just run 80-84 T-bird pumps and an underdrive pulley, but this would give me a LH outlet so I'd need an ED lower hose or universal one:

From Post #45 http://forums.corral.net/forums/5-0-5-8-engine-tech/1215629-just-installed-standard-rotation-pump-2.html

Mustang Water pump Standard Rotation:
   WP641 (Country Squire 88-91, LTD 79-85, Crown Victoria 88-91, Thunderbird 80-84)
   Gasket 35211 (plate to block)
   6 rib pulley ASP-820021
   Use existing backing plate (timing Cover?????)




I might take my reverse rotation pump into Bursons first and see if they have anything local. Trying to think ahead in case the water pump needs replacing.
