Default Edelbrock Water pumps

Are edelbrock water pumps really worth the price or is the Tuff Stuff water pump for less than half the price just as good?

Depends on what's important to you.
The Edelbrock's are American made in their own American foundries, cast then CNCd impellers VS stamped steel. Thus cost more.
The Tuffstuff are advertised as "Built in America" as in "Assembled in America" which is truly not the same as the Edelbrock's.
I personally like Milodon pumps. They use GMP housings (China,Korea,Thailand, Japan)
but use their own internals and are up front about it, with no word play.

Of course GMP pumps are made well and 1/2 the cost of the Milodon.

Ah gotcha, You didn't specify what motor in the original post and I didn't think to drill down the your pump link and read the detailed description of the fitment, lol. So I went by the motor you listed in your profile, 351C. Thus the summit link I pasted.

My Edelbrock aluminum water pump started leaking from the weep hole at 3,500 miles. I replaced it with a Tuff Stuff.

I've had the most trouble out of Edelbrock pumps. Go figure.

I ran an Edelbrock alum water pump on my 351W for many years, racing and cruising. I've had one on my race car for 6 seasons now.

I went with flowkooler on my FE. I know it's cast iron but that does not matter. It's a better pump IMHO.
