Water Pumps

I'm looking to buy a new water pump from jegs and i'm not sure if it matters if i get a short or long water pump, i've got a 350 sbc, don't know the year, it's older probably 70-75. What is the difference between the two? thanks.

70-75 will be the long pump....The short pump was used before 1969 except in Corvettes. If the alternator is on the drivers side (short pump)...If the alternator is on the passenger side (long pump)...If its the engine in your photo album, it will need the long pump.

Starting in 1988, they went to the serpentine belt system, reverse pump...but thats a different story.
