Gday yobboford and thanks. Its a Davis Craig water pump Ive ran in this car for about 4 years when it was the old 250 2V with tripple SU,s. It was bored out 60 thou so the walls were pretty thin and I only had a small thermo fan. I live in Rockhampton were it gets up around the 40 mark in summer and the only time she would get hot would be when stuck in traffic so it was probably fan not pump. my pump was the smallest one they made then now you can get a bigger one and as for price im not sure now i think around the $300 mark.

Awesome, I have always wondered how well the Davis Craig ones worked, did you use an old water pump housing with the impeller and shaft removed and sealed up?

Gday mate. If you look closely in the bottom photo you can see i made the blower snout support bolt were the old water pump used to be and have a hole through it with a water neck of the head.it gives me a little bit more clearance.

Where is the +1/like button when you need it. :-)

I like where you've got the charger.. much easier when you have the exhaust and intake on the other side.

Very tidy.
