    Big Block Chevy-Water pump has no heater or by-pass outlets...

    Like the title says the water pump has zero outlets for plumbing the heater or by-pass hoses...


    The pump was on the motor when I picked it up, figured to re-use. I will need the suction side for the heater and the by-pass hose is a good thing right? Options with this pump? Drill and tap? Bite it and buy a new pump?

    I wouldn't chance modifying it. Buy a new one and be done with it. No worries that way. In my opinion.

    New pump came in from Summit yesterday. I went with cast iron so I have some work to do.



    This one has some real nice heater and bypass hose fittings on it. Should work just fine

    I have also been working out all the fittings I am going to need. I ordered almost 400 bucks worth of -4, -6, -10, & -12 Push-Lok hose and fittings yesterday as well. Pipe plugs, bolts for the trans pan, etc., etc. I knew this day was coming so I have the money. Kind of exciting to be at this point!

    I also worked on the deep sump pan yesterday. Drilled and tapped for the temp sender.
    This is the spot. I am putting it at the back of the pan and deep enough that it should never be uncovered.

    Spot faced and pre drilled.

    Ran a tap drill in for the 1/8th pipe tap.

    All done!
