Meziere water pump question

Post  Larry T on May 27th 2014, 10:42 pm

i am concerned that the water flow may not be correct.the meziere water pump is wired correct and runs just fine im just not sure the flow through the water system is correct.i have a gm style radiator bottom outlet is on the passenger side and top outlet is on the drivers side.

will the radiator flow water either way? the pump turns clockwise should is turn counter clockwise for the gm radiator?

Should see flow when you take the rad cap off after therm opens.

I was checking to see with my cap off how good water was circulation and it hardly moving but the car stay cool.Well, let me say like this when the car start to heat up I can turn on the water pump and fan and I will see it drop.I have my pump and fan wired together could the volt be lower causing it no move the water?

If it stays cool, be happy. Smile 

If it was mine. the pump and fan would be on separate relays. Wink

in place of the thermostat I have a piece of sheet metal with a 3/4 hole seems to work.i took a look at the water movement today.when I turn the pump on water level drops about 1in and I can see movement so everything is kosher.  Wink

Now take out the 3/4" restrictor and you'll be good to go.
