Thanks for the answer dumb, and thanks for letting me know exactly how many they have too!! *** I might take all of them! Those are a lot of suppliers I can add to my go-to list. Dennis carpenter was the only one I had heard of that you listed. this site is the only place I have to find info. This is the first project that I couldn't just run out and buy all the parts I needed, and I could tell the Flathead pumps where completely different. and I have already got a reality check with some parts as far as lmc goes.

the bearings seam to be fine, just weeps a little out of the hole. the grease trick sounds like a good idea, but while everything is apart and the bank account is good I would like to do it right.

I definatly understand. I wish i could buy new also with most of the needs my pickumuptruck has. if you press off the old pully, make sure you measure it first, so you get it onto the new pump at the right depth. the belt being out of alignment wont help your cause at all. If it were me, i'd keep the old pump around as an emergency spare, with the repair/grease already done to help preserve the bearings and seal.

I have on occasion seen OEM water pumps on e-bay, and i've been told the '54 and '55 223 TRUCK pumps are the same, excepting for the flange/pully. there was one pump on ebay that was OEM that I kick myself for not bidding on, as it went for like only $30. I have a saved search of "1953 Ford" and then narrow down the 3k listings from there by just adding "pump" or "switch" or whatever
thought this might help, $58 http://www.northernautoparts.com/Pro...tModelId=13776
also told these were same, just swap pully http://www.rockauto.com/dbphp/x,carc...ater_Pump.html
