Remote water pump

Post  FORDMUD on February 19th 2013, 6:43 pm

Because of rules changes I'm looking to move my radiator to the back. To move some weight off of the front of the truck, and to get some heat out from under the hood. I've always toyed with the idea of an electric water pump but need the standard style to hold the pulley, to keep the power steering and alt lined up. Could I run a rear mounted remote water pump and keep the factory style pump with the impeller removed?

I don't know why not. I run a Meziere remote electric pump and it's a hoss. A simple idler pulley would be a cleaner deal than keeping the stocker, tho.

I run my radiator in the bed and use a CSR water pump. I also run a alternator and power steering pump. I have one double groove pulley on the crank only. I had to modify the power steering pump bracket to add strength because you don't use the hole that went to the original waterpump. I used the smallest lightest gauge muffler pipe along the frame and into the rear. You never have to worry about a hose collapsing.
