    I am trying to find a generic electric water pump that will mount in series with the radiator hose with 1.5" connections. Everything I find is for direct OEM replacement. Does anyone have a lead on a pump like I described above.

    Thanks
    Paul

    This may or may not work, but it is remote mounted. It can use 1.25" hose or 3/4 NPT.

    Yeah, what about teeing something like the above pump into a heater hose line?

    Have it "suck" water from the block, and force it into the radiator, given that you have a radiator with a heater hose nipple on it.

    Might have a problem when the engine water pump is turning, but I'd *guess* most electric water pumps don't easily freeflow when turned off.

    mind if I ask your game plan? I'm picturing puting a radiator in the back of a vehicle and using an auxillary pump for better flow.

    Sled Dog....Nope
    I hate to admit it, but I bought a Chineese Diesel 24 KW Generator. It was a price thing, I knew better....But.
    Its been nothing but trouble, oil and water leaks, injector leaks. Today we had a power failure and I cranked it up and heard a terrible BANG!! the water pump blew. The impeller fragmented and took out the bearings before I could shut it down. I called the importer, NO PROBLEM....I can order a new water pump from China and it will be here within 3 to 4 months ha ha ha ha...... So, I have welded shut the drive opening. I am going to use the external electric water pump and a electric radiator fan....SCREW THEM. When I can afford it, this thing is history. WIll get a Onan or Cat and be done with the problems. THANKS eveyone for your help. Imports form the Pacific Rim is JUNK !

    [/ QUOTE ] I think you've got many people that agree around here. I agree on everything except ATVs, Motorcycles, and Dirt Bikes but even then they are produced in America most of the time so thats fine.
