Water Pump Adapter Plate For 55 & Up 235, 261 Engines To Use Earlier 41-54 Water Pumps
Item # WPADAPT
When placing in a 1955-1962 Chevrolet 235 or 261 inline six cylinder engine in a 1954 or older truck some do not want a modified short shaft low position water pump. If you prefer the high position 216 water pump in the stock location, this adapter plate is for you.
This does require some handy work by you though. You will need your own 5/16 drill bit and a 3/8-16 tap.
Requires drilling two 5/16 inch diameter holes in front of engine block 3/4 inch deep and then tap new threads.
This part fits most Chevrolet; exceptions may apply. Please read the complete description to see if this part fits your specific vehicle and application.
