For years original cast iron water pumps have not been available and the alternative has been an inexpensive aluminum replacement. We're pleased to be offering rebuilt original pumps with new bearings & seals, which is a higher quality option for the longevity of your water pump. Another nice advantage with these pumps is the removable lubrication screw to allow you to maintain the pump and keep cool for many miles to come.
Moreover, in concours applications this screw is essential to avoid point deductions.
This is a superior product and while it's sold at a premium price we're confident this is a vastly improved alternative to the aluminum pump that you will find most readily used on these cars.
