1964 F100 292 water pump needed

Any ideas where to get one? The machine shop asked me if I was planning on replacing mine and I said yes, so they tossed my old one. Now I don't have the part number or anything to look at to try and find the right part.

Oh, man, they tossed it! Don't ever let them do that. I'd make them pay for a replacement unless you ok'd throwing it away.

You should be able to find a pump just about anywhere. The only potential problem is that the pulley may not work with the new pump. So when you go to pick it up, make sure that the pulley fit's and when you get home, make sure the pulley lines up before you bolt it on. If it doesn't, it is not a big deal, you can continue to look for a pump or get a pulley to match. Most pulley and pump combos directly interchange.

Howdy,


I hope you found that water pump!! If you didn't, I noticed that there are (2) "core' 292/272 water pumps on ebay right now for what I consider cheap since they seem to be hard tofind these days.

I would probably get both of them except I just bought a new (old-stock) pump from ebay a couple of weeks ago! I think I REALLY scored since it's in absolutely in "new" condition!

I also have an old water pump that is probably ok to use but is a little rusty and I do have a repair/rebuild "kit" I got from MACs a couple of years ago. so I'll rebuild mine to have a "spare".


I would suggest that whomever is looking for a pump, that you get one or both of those cores.

I don't know why, but all of a sudden, 50-60's Y-block water pumps seem scarce!


Regards,


Rick

I finally found one on some old shop's dusty shelf, but I think I may buy one of them as a spare. Thank you.

Every now and then, new (old-stuck) parts show up on eBay. If it's a good deal, I usually buy them to have as spares.

I did find a company in Oregon that will rebuild water pumps (all types)

They're a little expensive and a little slow (IMHO).

There's companies all around that do this. It may be our only source of good Y-block water pumps in the future!

Be aware of what you are buying, most ebay sellers haven't a single clue what parts fit.

For example, cars use a different Y block water pump than the trucks.

1954 truck 239/256 Y block pump (EAT-8501-B) is 1954 only. 1955 239/256 pump (B6T-8501-B) is the same as 1956 272 H/D.

1957/61 272/292 C Series Tilt Cabs use a specific water pump (B7T-8501-A).

B6C-8501-B .. Y Block Water Pump / Obsolete

1956/60 F100/600 272 M/D / 1957/64 F100/700 292 / 1962/64 292 C Series Tilt Cabs.

Absolutely true, Thanks Bill!

For those that don't know, the C/P trucks have a mount-pad on the top of the water pump for mounting the Fan and drive pulley.

The pickups didn't have it. The 239 water pump will only fit on the 239 timing cover. (and the 272/292 pumps will only fit on the the respective timing cover)

I am told that a 239/256 timing cover will fit on a 272/292 block. I had both but didn't try it.

I bought my last P-series "high-mount" (fan) pump from Rock Auto a few years ago. They only had a few left and now they're all gone.


I have subsequently decided to not use a high-mount fan, (and sold the pump to a very grateful guy here in Wa)

So I am now using the most commonly available (truck) water pump for my 1960 292 that is going in my 55 F-600.

If anyone has old Y-block water pumps, DON'T just throw them away!



Regards,


Rick

Yep, the Chinese are making them, I bought a new one for a 292 passenger car engine from Burbank Auto. The quality looked good but only time will tell.
