Where I got mine:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

skidim.com

waterskis.com

bakesonline.com

if you have your part number, ebay might even be a good option.

$140 - did he have his hand in your pocket when he quoted you....

Glad you resolved the issue.

Who wooda' thunk?

Isn't the only difference between auto and marine CWPs is that the impeller is stainless steel for the marine application? Or, at least that's how I've understood it.

On my LT1 waterpump, the impeller was steel like the auto pump.

Highway robbery.
That is absurd.....

==> Amazon / CA <==

You can change it yourself in 20 minutes or less. Be sure and get a new gasket for the cover. Use two paint can openers to pull the impeller. A little liquid soap and a zip tie will get the new one reinstalled perfectly. Bump the engine to orientate the vanes and button up the housing/cover.

Done deal. Easy job..

That quote was just for parts...not labour. You should have seen what he was going to charge for the whole pump! I asked because that's what I thought he had quoted me. I was mistaken.

Amazon...duh. Good call. Thanks everyone.

Well, I&rsquo;m guilty of bolting on an automotive CWP on my LT1. I just could not justify dropping $400+ for the Marine grade pump when the automotive equivalent was only $170. Been in there over 4 years and still no issues.
