hey all,

i had to replace my water pump in my vs ss and didnt realize at the time but there seems to be 2 types, a long bearing and short bearing.

my original one was a long bearing but the new one i bought was a short one, after installing it and putting the fan back on i noticed that the fan hits the harmonic balancer, thats when i worked out it was a short nose.

anyway im wondering if there is a spacer i can buy with longer bolts or do i need to buy another water pump (another $90 coz they wont return the short one coz its used).

thanks guys

The larger/longer pump has a bigger bearing in it, it is bigger for a reason.
Do yourself a favour and buy the correct pump.
