Putting a shorter water pump on a 59-61 364 or 401 engine. You have two choices, first is use a 1957 or 1958 364 water pump, they will work with the 59-60-61 timing cover. The 62-66 water pump looks like it will work but gasket outline does not match. To use the later water pump a 1962-66 timing cover must be used.. Both of these pumps will need pulleys for the shorter pumps. 57-58 water pumps and 62-66 ones are the same length.


There are many combinations of pulleys used so contact us so we can sort it out what your needs are depending on accessories used . Too many to explain here.
