I want to rebuild the numbers matching water pump 69 Camaro...

I have a numbers matching 69 Camaro RS Convertible with a 327 that I am restoring. I am putting the finishing touches on the engine rebuild and I am trying to re-use as much numbers matching parts as possible. The engine has 50,000 original miles on it and has not been started since 1972. I am assuming the water pump will need rebuilt and was wondering what tips and thoughts on rebuilding it you folks may have. I don't think the fuel pump is any good as well as the starter and alternator. Should I rebuild those as well or just replace them?

if it has a casting number and you want to rebuild it, it is possible.. I have used this guy for rebuilding my last carb. he does water pumps and fuel pump rebuilds also, but his restoration service is not cheap.. I'v never rebuilt a water pump myself and I would send it out if I wanted the same pump. http://www.classicpreservation.com/

rebuild the starter and alt.. there easy to rebuild, save money by going that way too

thanks...

Thanks Matt. I have found a few websites that walk you through the rebuild for some things. Matt, on a numbers matching car like this would I be better to just put auto parts store parts on it and save these originals in a box???

that would make sense to do it that way. don't rebuild them until you want to put them on.. seals can dry up over time
