Has anyone done something different for mounting or locating a waterpump on a sbf?

this is a 1970ish Holman Moody 351. being a vdrive, the pumps are in 'never never land'

Good job on the update, lousy luck on your part

Just me thinking but I think I'd go to an Indmar 351W cooling setup.

That uses a crankshaft mounted raw water pump and also a circulating pump that's the same as a PCM 351. The crankshaft mounted pump may sound inconvenient, but I think it would be easier than using a PCM style belt driven pump.

It's held on with 3 or 4 bolts depending on whether your harmonic balancer is 3 or 4 bolts and no belts to adjust while you're laying on top of the engine, working backwards. It's pretty easy to remove or install too. (Really easy to change impellers in a direct drive but that won't do you any good)

You'd also need a Indmar style thermostat housing. They're still available from Barr Marine. Check the link below

Not being sure of how much room you have, it's just an idea

Figuring that you need 2 circulating pumps, 2 raw water pumps and 2 thermostat housings for the Novi, the price starts to add up fairly quickly.
