Re: changing water pump on a supposed \'83 258
I don't mean to complicate things... I had hydraulic lock(rain water and I think I broke a rod) in my '79. Replaced it with an '85. Everything on the front of the motor was set in closer to the engine. Short shaft pump, shorter pullys everywhere. This combined with a forward offset radiator and a deeper recess(compared to the '79) in the grill for the rad. was done to allow for a bigger fan and fan clutch. My $0.013652.
