    Description

    Small block Ford water pump core, suitable for rebuilding. This version has a casting number of C8AE-A. Found on many Ford 289, 302, and 351W engines from 1968-69. These do not have casting dates, and plan on sending it to a vendor that specializes in water pump rebuilding. In all likelihood, the rear cover, heater tubes, and impeller will need replacing. Occasionally they have the original non-HiPo cast iron impeller, but not always. See our other core water pump listings for other casting numbers.

    Two different vendors to suggest for rebuilding, both are on the West Coast. Both are capable of rebuilding with reproduction cast iron HiPo impellers for an additional cost. We can drop ship the pump to a vendor if you include a note, probably should contact the vendor so that they can watch for it's arrival. As of 2019, both of these vendors are in the $155 range for the basic rebuild service with returned shipping (lower 48 States).
