Water pump help

I'm new to this site and hot rodding so this will be the first of a million questions. I have a 31 'A' 5-window coupe with a 327 small block. The motor sits low where the fan only cools the lower half of the radiator and I would like to have the fan more centered. I was told there is a water pump designed with water journals raised 2-3 inches, which better centers the fan on the radiator. I know I could easily go with an electric fan but I would rather stay with belt driven. Is anyone familiar with this type of water pump? Also, what is a good place/web-site to find a variety of headers designed with the 31' in mind? Thanks.

More water pump help

Thanks for the info guys. Do you or anyone you know have any experience with the 'Zip' raised water pump setup? I'm kind of anal about reliability. Any opinion on going with something like this or should I consider an electric setup (Keeping reliability in mind)? Thanks again.
