I'm using a Edelbrock Aluminum pump that was intended for 70 and up SBFs. This has the radiator hose connection on the driver's side. I wanted this for my radiator setup which has the top hose on the passenger side and the bottom hose on the driver's side. To go with the above pump, I used a front cover that had the bolt-on timing pointer on the passenger's side (so it would be visible). Fortunately, my damper had the timing marks located for a pointer on the passenger's side too. If the damper had ben marked for the opposite side, I probably would have used one of those stick-on timing tapes to relocate it. Interestingly, I was able to use stock concours 1966 radiator hoses even though the lower hose is on the driver's side now.

[B]I like to use the kind that doesn't leak.
What kind might that be?

Someone asked for more info. Well the engine is a Ford Racing 345hp GT-40x heads crate motor from CJ Pony parts. I shold be picking it up by wed. this week. I know it comes with a balancer and timing chain cover but I may have to change both to get the timing marks where I need them. I am looking at using a set of "March pulleys" for water pump,alternator and crank. NO P/S on car sucks HP. Should I go with cast iron or try an aluminum w/p. Trying to lighten up the nose of this car. Seems to be very tail happy.

Tom,

You might want to check out this thread because I was asking a similar question:

I'm look at putting that same engine in my '65 so let me know how it goes, ok?

MOtorcraft replacment pumps work very well and obviously fit perfect.

PS they don't leak.
