I need to go over the water pump pulley and pump and see why it's wobbling.

I went out this morning and helped my friend's dad pull the 454 I purchased for my gasser project. Us two oldtimers got it out of the truck in a few hours, so I guess we can still do OK turning wrenches!

You know YOU ARE RIGHT! It never occurred to me to be PO at him but now that you mention it, I really am. Even if he did it, there was no reason for him to be so totally and completely inconsiderate of the rest of us and post about it.

So I pulled the water pump pulley off to find out the friggin flange on the water pump is what is wobbling!



Luckily I can call my brother as I am looking at it and he has one in stock and will be by this week with it.

I also go some serious cleaning done in the garage making room for my next project.

It isn't mid engine anymore, it will have a 53 Corvette 235 up front where it belongs.

Is the flange loose, or shaft bent?

The flange looks like it's bent, right where that Sharpie mark is. If you can picture this it would be like a piece pulley was put on there with a washer under three of the bolts between the flange and the pulley, all four bolts were then tightened and the flange bent where that one washer wasn't there. If that makes any sense, it is bent out right there, crazy. I thought about just grinding it, it isn't that big of a deal. But I will go ahead and put another waterpump and get it over with done right.

One of the things I had forgotten about this car was it's quick ratio box. I went out on this drive thru "The Canyon" and the friggin thing felt like a go cart, after driving the Rambler with the 55 GMC bus-like steering with what feels like a 50:1 ratio I was blown away with how quick this thing turns when you turn the wheel. I had forgotten, that sucker really handles well.

Tonight I pulled the carb on the Gran Sport. It's been flooding and thus hard starting. My brother is a specialist in carburation and is coming to town this weekend so I pulled it for him along with getting the rebuild kit tonight so he can rebuild it for me.
