Need cheap short Chevy water pump

I was wondering if any of you smart guys out there would know if there is an aluminum short small block Chevy water pump available at local discount part stores. Did I say cheap! I need an application,model and year. It needs to have passenger side lower hose discharge. I saw a 70 Corvette pump and it looked great, I don't need mounting lugs. It's for my V8 Chevette project. Thanks for help!

I believe any SBC prior to '68 had the short water pump. You may not find an aluminum model in local stores. Probably be cast.

Not sure about the water pump, but have you ever drivin the Cvette with a V8 in it?
I had one with a nice built 350, turbo 350 tranny about 3 years ago and it flat flew! Scary quick. I broke 3 regular Cvette rear ends, so Id get an S-10 rear and do a swap.
Ive got a pic in my gallery and more to add that I just found. Take a look. It was a fun ride. HG
p.s. Nice job your doing on yours so far.

Thanks for trying ,I knew it would be a long shot for an aluminum pump. I'll go with the Corvette pump,it's only $24 for a new one -no core. Hemi, did you have all the same problems I've had with the build?

Luckily when I got mine, I was only going to buy the engine and ended up dealing him outta the whole car.
It had headers and looked like a factory fit. He done a great job. So I had to do basically nothing. There was some V8 chevette swap sites online some time ago, but I'll have to try and remember were.
There a blast when there done though. HG

The vette pump use's a 3/4" bearing instead of the 5/8" for better bearing life.

Not only the bearing size is different for the Corvette pump. The Corvette pump is not a true short water pump. Most people will ague this point and most people don't know. I will have to look up the measurements I have been there and done that.

There is the short water pump, the long water pump and the Corvette water pump. The Vette pump is not as short as the short pump and not as long as the long water pump.

You might want to hit e-bay, there are a ton of aluminum water pumps for sale on there. You can get one cheap (sometimes cheap is not always good).

If you are starting from scratch the Vette pump might work for you, just don't be surprised when/if none of the pulleys line up.

The pumps made by GM are the same overall size with different bearing size's, same castings used.
I have both types of pumps and the overall size is the same.
Don't forget the difference in the pulley hole size and the clutch fan will have to fit the 3/4" nose.
Alaskian has a beautiful truck that one must see.
Soooo much work and detail.

Thanks...Ebay great idea! The short pump diamentions are 5 7/8" and the long pump is 7 1/4. I don't want an inbetween like Corvette. I guess it just sounds too much like Chevette !
