Water Pump Upgrade
#1
Hi everyone,

Looking to replacing my water pump on the 351c 4v on my 1971 Mach 1 M-Code. I plan on doing some open track racing on this car so I'm looking to upgrading it. I'm budgeting up to $120 max. I'm hoping to get one with a higher flow and possibly in aluminum. Any recommendations?

Sage advice and comments deeply appreciated. Thanks! Big Grin

Awesome, thank you, Widowmaker00. Did you have any fitment problems with it? I was reading up on the Flowkooler on other forums and they mentioned having to grind the casing on that particular water pump to make it fit. Thanks!

Nope it just bolted right up. Never leaked.

I got an aluminum one through a friend of mine from the local Engine Pro distributor. It's been a nice piece.

Sounds good. Thank you, everyone. I decided to jump on the Miloden aluminum since the Flowkooler one had it listed for the 351c plus Modify (which I'm guessing you'll have to mess around with it to make it fit). Amazon had 1 in stock for immediate shipping. I also got their high-flow thermostat. Hoping the install will go well. Thanks again!
