Pumps (FWC system)

Is the new pump (the one that comes with the fwc) interchangeable with the engine mounted raw water pump? Has this been asked a million times before? If so, my apologies
I mounted the new pump near the flywheel area and it just seems a lot neater if I use it to pump the raw water and use the old pump to pump the coolant. Whatcha Afourians think?

I agree and that is how mine is set up.

What size belt are you using between the new pump and the flywheel just out of curiosity? I found the 3vx280 was too small and the 3vx300 was too big, so I had to order the 3vx290 and am awaiting its arrival. The 290 is an uncommon size they say and so I’m questioning my installation now.

The 3vx290 it is

It was still not easy to get this sucker on but so far so good. Now, on to the next step...hope it works.Name:  66BF9DFD-F6CB-4A09-9196-0D91D20B0856.jpg
