Diameter of SBC short water pump inlet

I recently purchased an SS corrugated rad hose kit (Wysco). It is 1 3/4" dia and has adaptors for smaller connections (rad and water neck). It has chrome dress up sleeves. I have a SBC short water pump and the inlet is 2" OD. Can anyone tell me if all short SBC water pumps are 2" inlet or do some aftermarket pumps have 1 3/4 inch inlets?
Also does anyone know where I can get a 2" adaptor and chrome dress up sleeve for the that can adapt the 2" connection to the
1 3/4" SS rad hose kit (Coolflex has them but I'd have to morgtage my house to buy it)?

all of mine aftermarket or not are 1 3/4" but on my electric water pump you get to choose the size you need from a selection that they offer you.your radiator hose should still be 1 3/4" though.i'll take that back.on the large griffin rad. that i have is made for racing i guess but the bottom hose flange angles a little upward and is maybe 1 5/8".i had to make everything work by using different size tubing on both ends plus installing a drain in it since the rad. didn't come with one.
