I recently had the water pump replaced on my '73 Mach, and the performance shop that did it gave me my old pump back saying that it was the original pump and could easily be rebuilt. Thinking I may rebuild it to sell to someone doing a concours restoration, I want to make sure the pump is indeed original before wasting my time (and money). Anyhow, there is a number "30816" stamped on it with a "A16" stamped under that, but no Ford markings of any kind. Is this actually an original pump or a rebuilt replacement.
Any help would be appreciated.

It's not an original as far as I know Duane. I have never seen an OEM FoMoCo pump in aluminum or iron that does not have the Ford or FoMoCo script on it in addition to an engineering number.

Thanks Alex. That's kind of what my thoughts were, but I thought I would ask anyway.
