No, I'm assuming the new water pump was cast differently than the original. The pump aligns on those 2 pins and is held in place by the six bolts so I know the pump is in the correct place and it is tight to the block. There was a clearance issue even before I tried to put the thermostat bracket on, so I don't think that was my problem.

Thanks, Steve

Interesting. I have the same boat you do and I used a pump for a 95 Corvette. No clearance issues on the pump or water manifold, but I did plug an extra heater hose output that was on the replacement pump.

Here you go! Obviously I painted it red just to be different. The additional plugged port is the one on the lower left side.

I replaced mine with a pump from a 92 Corvette based on this thread.

This is how I plugged mine, I had a plug made at work but I like those caps that jstruvey used. I only had the one to plug not two.

I bought the plugs at O'Reilly Auto Parts. They come in a box of assorted sizes for about $6, and 2 of each size. Used the largest size in the box (3/4") for both outlets.
