I got this pump (I think it's a River Rat) with the Canyon and would like to take it apart to see the internal condition but can't see how it's put together. There were 3 screws holding it to the timing cover and a flat head screw in the top, but that's it. I'm guessing you take the snap ring...
i read through a different post about the river rat pump, i have the new bearings and impeller. does anyone have a part # for the seals? they didnt have them where i got the impeller. also.....how do you get the bearings out of the housing??????:)eh:)
thanks for any help.
At the end of 9 laps, water temp was 280 degrees. Vanes intact and block flows water freely. The shaft of the pump turns roughly/grainy.... Are the bearings replaceable or do I need a new pump :confused:
Anyone know where I can get new bearings?
I'm looking to buy a Mike Kuhl or Kuhl Marine River Rat BBC Timing cover that I can directly bolt my River Rat water pump to. If you have one lying around or know of someone that has one please let me know.
Thanks In Advance :thumb:
I found one. No longer searching for one.
I'm looking for a nice Kuhl Marine or Mike Kuhl "River Rat" BBC Timing cover that I can bolt my River Rat water pump to. Let me know what you got.
Thanks in advance for your responses and PM's:thumb:
Can someone tell me how this comes apart? I took off the cover thinking I would be looking at the Impeller....Nope just a drive for a fuel pump. If I was at the lake trying to do this I would be ready to Scream!!!
Thought I'd share how my brother and I installed the water pump on the ls engine I put together last winter for our Sanger hydro. I already had the pump and by laying against the cover it looked pretty close to a nice fit. I got the crank to cam centerline spec and he put the hole in the timing...
I like running a water pump but wonder if it's maybe a bit much to drive the cam/valve train, fuel pump and a water pump off the cam side of a Jesel belt drive. Any experience on this good or bad? Thanks...
