Somewhere awhile back I saw adapters to run BBC water pumps on 472/500 engines. The BBC pumps I have now are after market aluminum . If this swap works with out messing all the belt drive stuff up I figure might be good way to save weight and get more water flow. Anyone with any knowledge and or experience on this subject?

I've been looking into that myself, simply because of the fact that you can get Chevy pumps in reverse rotation style, which would make a serpentine belt system way easier to set up.

I just have enough alternator to drive just about anything and I'd like to free up more space on the motor (I have electric fans I'm installing too). Been thinking about an electric steering rack so I can ditch the pump and steering box which would let me move the alternator to the cold side of the motor.
