Need 3953692 water pump
« on: March 18, 2006, 10:22:40 PM »
Needing a dated water pump from early H of 68.  All of my engine cast dates are H4 to H7.  Car build is 8D.  Engine build is 0816.  I know this is not an easy one to find as this is extremely early 1969 production and this was a new water pump.  Thanks,  Dave

Dave:

Hope you find your water pump.  When I found the correct 69 327 cid for my ride, it still had the original 3953692 water pump, K 8 8 date code for Nov 22 engine build.

In my searching around over the years, I do have a spare GM water pump.  It is #3927170, date coded E 17 71.  I realize that you are going for an accurate date coded rebuild and that this pump probably isn't what you are looking for - however, it is available.

Additionally, according to page 224 of Chevrolet by the Numbers: 1965-1969, it states the following about #3927170: This water pump was used interchangeably with #3953692.  #3953692 saw extensive usage, #3927170 saw very little usage

Good luck

Rich, just to clarify.  The 170 was only used on Tonowanda assembled small blocks.  So if your block code starts with a T, you can use it, if it starts with a V, then no.
