Water Pump Rotation

Ok, I've searched this forum and still am confused. When standing in front of the car looking at the engine. (Pre 86 Crate 350SBC with V pulleys), which direction does the water pump turn CW or CCW. Thanks in advance. George

Sorry for being so stupid, I should have figured it out from the Crankshaft rotation. Thanks anyway guys. I'm sometimes not the brightest litebulb, but I am a quick learner. George

No problem ,George. At least you asked an easy question. Those I can answer. GMC boogie was faster but I DID know the answer.
Remember, there are NO dumb questions, but there are dumb answers.

Serpentine belt systems turn the pump counter-clockwise.

About 1999 I read an article about the Ford "short pump". I bought it but didn't use it so I put it on the shelf. Today I've built up a SBF in a track roadster with this pump using v-belts and it is overheating. I'm wondering if the pump might have been a reverse rotation type. I had disassembled it for powdercoating. I didn't elongate any holes but I might have pressed on another hub if I discovered the holes didn't match the w/p pulley....this part of the project was over 5 years ago so my memory isn't so good. I used Zoops pulleys and couldn't get the spacing right so I milled a spacer to bring the crank pulley forward about .3". This pump has a metal plate on the back. The timing cover the engine is using had originally served as the back side of the pump but the ports lined up and it sealed well. I also plugged the heater outlet. The temp goes way over 230 and then looses the 50/50 coolant past a 13# cap.
I'd can't tell from all the foregoing discussion if indeed it would be possible to have a reversed impeller in this pump. What to you guys think ?
