    Default Timing cover/cam-driven pump question

    I have an old Weiand timing cover and Kuhl water pump. Being naive, I thought they would just mate up in the correct position but I was wrong. The pump centers itself on the cover just fine but the bolt-holes do not line up at all or in any orientation.

    Is it common to have to drill and tap new holes for this to happen? Or would a cam-drive spacer "clock" the pump into the correct orientation? It pains me to have to drill and tap my timing cover.

    Thanks for any info.

    Have done it many times, and will do it many more times before I leave this world.

    Make sure you check your end play of you cam. I had to spacer mine a few thousandths to get the right tolerance.
