Pep, a while ago you told me about a aluminum adapter for fitting a 202 Holden water pump onto a 302 Ford Windsor.

Do you still have it ? is it still for sale?

If so could you tell me a bit about it?

I'm thinking it's a flat plate that bolts on to the Ford timing case and the 202 water pump bolts to it.

* How much more clearance will I get?, about 2 inches?

* What about the bottom (crank) pulley, will it line up or will I have to get a different one?

* Could you let me know how much you want for it and the cost of postage?

If you let me know your details, I can send a Bank cheque this week.

I sent you a PM but I can't be exact with all the measurements but from what I've seen they make the Ford engines about as long as the Chevies. The one I have is cast alloy...its not a perfect cast but it can be cleaned up to look decent.....its never been used. The lower pulley will need to be measured and possibly turned on a lathe and cut then welded...but it might be possible to get a pulley off another make/model. The Ford pulleys are just a slide over arrangement that Ford did when accessories were fitted so a bit of Sherlock Holmes work might solve the problem.

Thanks Pep, got your PM and sent a reply with my details.

I was going to get some polished aluminium pulleys, maybe a chev after market one re-drilled for the Ford for lower?

I'll get the 202 water pump and pulley and go from there.

Any body seen a polished aluminium 202 Holden pump?

Are water pumps from 202 with air conditioning better pumps?

Were/Are these adapters available for Clevo's? Would the 202 pump flow enough for the cleveland?
Altho' the Cleveland fits in the engine bay, some more clearance in front of the water pump would enable me to use a bigger fan.

Jeffa,
I have a 302 Windsor (it came out of a 1970 Fairlaine ZD), the water pump has the inlet on the passenger side, some people refer to it as a Cleveland type water pump, it has a plate that bolts up behind the pump (factory).

I donít know if the plate makes the Cleveland water pump inter changeable on the Windsor Block?

Anyhow the adaptor that I got of Pep looks like it bolts straight onto the timing case.

If the timing cases are the same on the Windsor and the Cleveland the 202 Water pump adaptor will fit.

Some one has one for sale in the Swap Meet page -

Iím not shore that I will use the one I got off Pep, it looks like I will have enough clearance to run a stock Ford Waterpump.
