Quote from: Ghoste on August 18, 2009, 09:48:46 AMSo the official concensus is that the Milodon pump with the stock cast iron housing is the way to go?
Quote from: gasoline_24 on August 18, 2009, 10:42:27 AMThat sounds like what I am hearing. Mancini carries the water pump and has then in stock. They are sending mine today. I think the only real difference between the aluminum and original is about 8-10 lbs., which for my stroker I doubt I will notice. However, I would wait for Ron to chime in as he is the man.
Quote from: Mfr426 on August 18, 2009, 11:21:16 AMYeah Ron, I'm running that pump combo that I got from 440Source and EVEN installed a trans cooler to try to help cool my 505 stroker. The temp did not waiver even after I put the cooler in. I've never had an engine run this hot all time. Looking at that photo says it all. I guess I'll be ripping the front end of the engine off again. This is such a good post and find Ron. Thanks for taking the time to share the findings. Mike R

Quote from: turbobitt on August 18, 2009, 11:36:39 AMWell, as I'm reading this I'm a bit surprised. I have a 440 source WP and housing on my 572 Hemi and have no issues. I will admit that I did gasket match the ports before I installed it but unaware at the time that it was "bad". I didn't notice any restrictions compared to a stock housing but then again I didn't compare them together. BTW, I just went to a show over the weekend with another member 69 our/tea and drove it over an hour in this brutal heat with no issues. I believe that my engine is streatable but very stout with 11:1 compression, solid roller cam, and all the rest of the stuff that goes with it.
Quote from: Ghoste on August 18, 2009, 12:01:57 PMIs there any aluminum housing which is good?
Quote from: Belgium R/T -68 on August 18, 2009, 12:05:04 PMI checked my old invoices and found that my pump is indeed a Milodon but the housing is a Summit one (SUM-314441).Is that also chines crap or? Per
Quote from: Mick70RR on August 18, 2009, 02:10:09 PMRon, did you have the housing with 440 Source cast into the front or the original one with no name on it?
