It has been suggested that a waterpump of a Chevy Luv 1972 could fit onto a Bellett.
The LUV pumps are still available here in the US.

I had a request from oz_toffa who wants to try this out.

I ordered one and took some pictures which I will post here for a comparison.
Most of the bolt holes seem to match up and the actual pump housing is a very similar shape.
The outlet is in a very different place, but I would think a flexible hose would work.

I will leave it up to oz to actually try and fit it on.

I'll see how adept I am at loading up the pictures here.

I forgot to mention anything about pricing.
This particular LUV pump I got was about US$32 (24 plus 8 for shipping to US address).
We have not yet ventured to see how much it is going to be to ship over the pond, but I suspect around as much as the thing cost.

This is a closer up of the original Bellett pump.
One thing to note is that between holes 2 and 3 in the picture there is another hole.
On my engine there is no bolt in that hole. I mention this because on the LUV pump (next picture) there is no hole there.

Here is the LUV pump. (Bomba de LUV in spanish, has a nice sound to it :)

Note the direction of the outlet.
Also note that hole 1 does not exist.
That may be the real sticky point, but I think it could fit still.

One last picture here, there was a gasket that came with the new one.
I scanned a copy of it and hopefully this will come out as actual size
(print on 8.5x11 paper).

I have a chev LUV water pump also here (at home that is) but it has a boss on the back area of the water outlet i think. Can't recall if Bellett has that also.?

I had realized I also should have taken pictures of the backside.
While Glenn was busy replying, I was doing that.
Yes there is a hole in the backside of the outlet that would need to be plugged.
I suspect you could find or make something to screw in that would plug it.
(see pictures to follow).

thanks for all your help there, Doug.

may be able to use internal bearings and seals to repair the original Bellett pumps.

worth it for a job lot.

cheers

That was the pump I was looking at for the OHC motor sitting in the shed Oz.

Maybe I'll have to owe you money for two pumps :shock:

Cheers
