Shortest SBC water pump

What is the shortest chevy small block water pump? Part number year excetera. It has to have the old style V-belt rotation? I could take time to look it up but I know some body up here knows this right off the top of their head.
I'm helping a buddy put a small block chevy in a 37 ford sedan. We're on a tight, tight budjet! We have the engine in the car and it looks like it might work with the stock radiator if we can find a short pump. Not gonna serpentine system or have AC for right now but we are gonna use the cavalier power steering pump. No problem with any of that I just need some info on the water pump.
And if you have a minute see if any of you can help this guy with his 85 chevy truck
*help* hopefully i didnt fry everything
Read my post there I think all he did was burn the ground straps or fry the little fuse strap on the firewall.

Thanks in advance.
Chris

All V8 Chevys before 69 had the short pump.........Alternator is on the drivers side beside the valve cover. Go to a scrap yard and get ALL the pulleys and brackets off of one car, that is your best bet.

Don't expect miracles... the length of the water pump is one thing, but the pulleys tend to put the accessories almost as far forward as they do with a long pump.

The short pump might be 7/8" shorter over all, but the crank pulley, water pump pulley, and accessories are only about 1/8" different between the two drives.

The stock 37 radiator is angled back so the waterpump will be the tight spot. If the altenator is a problem, you will need a bottom mount altenator bracket setup.
I have not put a SBC in a 37 but there are a ton of guys out there that have done it.
