I need to know what brand waterpump those of you that used March pulleys have.

I bought a Weiand aluminum water pump and the March underdrive V-belt pulleys, but the pulley rubs on the pump.

Summitt is willing to trade the waterpump but can't tell me if the new one will clear either.

I'm hopeing to get this thing together this week-end.

Thanks again guys

Rick:
I do have team G Weiand wp (pn 8222 ?) ... do not have March pulleys. Hub on my Weiand was a tad too close to pump body ... used Mr Gasket pn 6129 water pump pulley shim kit. Kit has two 1/16" and one 1/8" shims ... one or more go between wp hub and wp pulley to achieve alignment. Kit costs less than $10. Weiand sells same thing, don't remember pn. Maybe this could help you if it doesn't throw your belt out of alignment?

I have the Edelbrock aluminum pump. BUT, even the stock pulley rubbed a bit so when I did the motor swap I took a dremel and ground off just a hair where the pulley rubbed, it doesn't affect anything and it's behind the pulley so you can't see it either.
