There is also a recent parallel discussion going on in THIS THREAD, perhaps the two could be merged?

Those are for the single pulley. They are the old style with the bronze bushing. That means you cannot tighten your belts like you would on a normal water pump or you will burn out those bushings. Personally, I would buy the new pumps before I ever installed one of those old type kits into an old pump.

It may still be a worthwhile purchase for the components (if you like the price).

The impeller is cast iron and will also fit the cassette-type bearing used in the truck water pumps. Often these impellers are badly corroded and not suitable to re-use, or may be fractured when pulling them off the old bearing.

The Truck bearings are available separately, but kits are hard to come across. By using this kit with a separately purchased bearing, you can rebuild your original pump.

I try to buy any used truck water pumps I can find with good pulleys and impellers, because those bits are hard to find, but the bearings themselves are still a catalog item.

Those kits are still available from Mac's for $30 each. https://www.macsautoparts.com/early_...build-kit.html


A brand new pump with modern design is $64.99: https://www.macsautoparts.com/early_...build-kit.html


They also have kits for the later Flathead Ford 8BA engines which have the more modern style components. I wonder if there is any interchangeability with the 2 groove pulley pumps. https://www.macsautoparts.com/early_...build-kit.html

We are confusing the bush pump and the bearing pump.
I thought this thread was on the bearing type pump (probably with double sheave pulley)
