Jack's Comments:

This is everything you need to rebuild your early Ford aluminum small block water pump that requires a shorter hub shaft that later small block pumps require. The bearing is made with an outside diameter slightly over-sized to achieve a tight press fit. You will need a press and the right press accessories to install the seal without damaging it. No instructions included.

Other parts you may need:
-Service impeller
-HP impeller

Install Tips:
Tip: Use a little Permatex Form-a-Gasket #1 to help seal the water pump bearing and seal to housing.
Tip: Measure your hub and impeller locations before removing.
Tip: Make sure the seal does not make contact with the impeller when installed.  (see Q/A's below for more information)

Check out this YouTube video that shows a tractor water pump being rebuilt with the same type of bearing and seal.

Q: When I installed a non-factory service impeller it made contact with the seal just short of the depth that was required. Does the impeller make contact with the seal? What should I do?
A: No, it should never contact the impeller. Your original pump must have had the old style single seal that is thinner than the double seal that is with our kit. At the shop we handle this by removing just enough of the impeller hub so it doesn't touch the seal and still installs at the correct depth. This will not affect the impeller performance. It's also OK to not have the shaft install completely into the impeller hub. As long as its at least 3/4 the way in the impeller hub and is a tight fit you shouldn't have any problems.

Q: I removed the hub without measuring its location first. Can you tell me how to install it again in the right location?
A: The distance from the housing bearing hub to the fan hub face is normally 1 inch.
