What you are describing applies to the big flatheads but not the little V8-60

This was kind of a trick question. Maybe it wasn't completely fair.
On the little V8-60 the front motor mounts and both water pumps are all part of the same casting. Therefore to change either water pump or either motor mount both water pumps come off together.
Somebody ask one. I am heading out.
