Maybe this is a dead issue. But I have a 56 Fairlane that I purchased with a 302 in it (which came from an 87 5.0 mustang). It had a thousand other problems which I have since resolved. But, the issue now is that the car has no smog pump, p/s pump or a/c. It has the alt on the driver's side and the belt runs under the crank, over the water pump and over the alt and back down to the crank. I have overheat issues whenever Idling. I took it on a 3 hr highway trip with no problems. Looking at the past thread post. I know my water pump is turning the wrong direction. I bought an a/c delete, but all it was is a bracket to move the p/s pump to where the ac was, which doesn't help. I tried a 87 crown vic pump which pump the right way and would work if the timing cover didn't hit it and the flow ports matched. I tried using the original water pump plate, but the impeller grinds on it. I'm running out of options. Any ideas?Right now, I need a good fab guy. :confused: lol

Fomoco Water Pump

If the pump you have is cast iron it is wrong, the pump you want (O'Reillys) is an aluminum pump the brand is Master part# CP4052 I have a 5.0 in my '54 and have been down that road, this part # is standard rotation.Good Luck! If for some reason this does not work send me a pm,sometimes when guys do this swap they will use an early timing cover so they have a front dipstick to go with the front sump pan.

Thank you

I ordered the part from Oreilly's It didn't fit though, I have to get a new timing cover. The bolt pattern fit but the back plate is too large. Im gonna try that and see what I can come up with . Thanks for helping though
