    I'm having troubles finding my waterpump pully for the 454/forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
    It's lost in my garage or the dog ate it /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif or I thought it was a 350 pully and gave it away /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    So if I cannot find the pully I am now thinking of aftermarket stuff...or junkyard time.
    How do you figure out what works?
    Is is just the water pump being long or short?
    I belive I have a long style pump?

    i saw a 454 a few days at the local yard with all the pulleys I'll check it out and see if it's there. I think the 350 stuff should work. the pumps seem the same /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Burt, I'll look in my parts pile and see if I have one. If I do and it's good you can have it for the shipping charge.

    Burt, I do have one it's a 2 row with the inner being a smaller diameter than the outer. Let me know if this will work for you. A quick guesstimate on shipping would be between $5-$8.

    I believe with the stock pulleys and brackets, if your alternator is on the passanger side then you have a short water pump, if the alternator is on the drivers side of the engine you have a long water pump application. ..at least that was my understanding of it while i was researching BBC pulleys when i needed to order some for my BBC.

    ...Those cog belt pulleys are sweeeet. Love em on my BBC. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    sorry ryan i guess what i meant to say was factory 454's are lwp. except maybe some of the early 70's corvettes. i think gm went to the long style in 69? but i know you can still get the short style! /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    That would make sense..
    On that water pump application chart it said SWP 65-69, LWP 69-75.. but then when was the first year for the 454?
    What i was getting at is reguardless of the year block he has, he could have picked up the long or short water pump, so it would suck if he bought LWP pulleys only to find out he has a SWP. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
    When i bought my camaro it had a 73 block but a SWP setup. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
