Looks sensational!

How much belt do you have on the water pump pulley? I can't see in this photo too well. I ended up with a standard rotation water pump and a set of March pulleys to be sure I got the pump spinning. It looks like you might have some special (aka really sticky?) pulley on the pump.

There's not alot of contact but seems to work ok. I will eventually change to standard rotation for period look.
Out of interest, do you know the part numbers for the standard rotation water pump and timing cover to suit a 5.0l Windsor??

Cheers

Timing cover was the same (I am pretty sure I didn't change it EDIT: See below). I think I still have the box for the pump somewhere - I'll see if I can find it. Got it locally at Ford Motorsport. Plenty of options on Summit.

These are the pulleys I used: https://www.summitracing.com/int/par...1675/overview/

They are just visible in this image:

Checking my records, I did replace the timing cover (the original failed) and I cannot remember if there were two versions. I think there is just one for both pumps.

I did manage to find the pump box but it is a little worse for wear. Details below. Hopefully there is enough there to at least point you in the right direction.

Just checked the Ford Performance parts catalog and I reckon the pump I have is M-8501-F351 and the timing cover M-6059-D351

Yes, I agree, very nice.

Hi Brett,

Been following the build of our FIA and it's really coming together. The PACE chassis and suspension will provide a great platform and with the FIA body and all the detail from #98 that you are incorporating into your build, will make for one cool Cobra. You are getting very close indeed, keep up the good work!
