Default short engine mounts

I have installed a flathead into my LP2 and am having trouble getting the water pump outlets to line up with the radiator. All the pumps I have have the same height lugs as each other, so I am wondering if my mount is the correct type. Currently the outlets on the water pump are about 25mm lowwer than the radiator outlets, the engine mounts I got from Mac's auto parts to suit a Mercury, having been told they were the same. Can anyone assist or at least quote the height of an original mount?

G'day Rob,

My opinion, without pictures of your fitment issues, is that the problem is not with your water pumps but rather with your radiator.

Read Mystery Radiator , this may help you out.

There are however different ( and therefore incorrect ) waterpumps, but they will only fit earlier or later motors, so I'n pretty sure that this won't be the problem.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link Pedr, my radiator prior to cleaning was yellow & as far as overflow etc.. appears IDENTICAL to the first pic loaded by Eric, has middle offset bottom outlets (picture 2) with 2 drains but no top bracket.. . So it appears it is a Blitz tropical, and that's why it does not line up with the engine. Anyone want a Blitz radiator, will swap for a carrier unit in rebuilt condition......???

If I can remember right I think I read someware that There was a mercury car with truck type pump mount but that they are a little different in hieght. Are your new pumps for a car or truck? If a truck pump they are all the same.
