Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Small block Ford water pump core, suitable for rebuilding. This version has a casting number of C6OE-A. Found on many Ford 289 engines from 1966-67. 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).
