Re: [Amc-list] stupid water pumps (195.6 water pumps)

No, that's not the HD pump. From the parts book it looks like there was a change for 62, so pre 62 pumps should have that extra hose (and might be the one I got with the "heater hose" connection in the wrong place, not a 199 pump... it was a long time ago!!), 62-65 don't. My 61 and a 62 were L-heads, and they didn't have the extra hose either, not that I can remember. Every OHV I've had was 62 or later. The HD pump was for later models.

while getting an engine put together for the 61
classic wagon found another variable in the water
pumps i have not heard mentioned yet. the 61 head and
water pump are different than the 62 head and
waterpump on the engine i used for parts for the 61 in
that the water neck on the bottom of the 61 head has
water port that goes to the water pump. it takes about
a 2" length of heater hose. the pump has a water neck
going strait up to the head. the head has a port going
strait down. right at the bottom of the thermostat
housing. my 62 engine i used for parts did not have
that. my 62 that i drive around all the time also does
not have that. is that the "heavy duty" that was
mentioned previously maybe?
