Edelbrock water pump plumbing question??
REcently got an Edelbrock p/n 8881 water pump for my Astro van 4.3L vortec engine. The only hitch is there is NO outlet on the pump body for the heater hose. 8o I figure my options are: drill and tap a hole in the pump for a fitting or find an alternate outlet for the heater hose.
Has anyone tackeled this problem before?
Thank you for your time,

Send it back and ask for the right water pump.
Hi Jonathan, The fly in the ointment is that hi-performance water pumps don't come with the heater outlet boss. So ya have to make do. It's a micro example of hotrodding a 1969 Ramble American "Sport". Doable... but ya gotta do a lot of your own engineering. 8-o Thanks for the post Jonathan. Anyone else got any experience with this?? Ammo Guy 8-) Aim small, miss small.
