Re: electric water pump

Hi pinkbits,
the Davies Craig fans are designed for 5.0L unmodified motors.

For high performance go for CSR or Meziere pumps.

I think Ford Motorsport do a high performance normal pump also.

Cheers

Hey AZZA,
From memory they are rated at 2000 hrs or something, similar to the Davies Craig.

I normally cut the front off std pump but you could just cut the blades off the impellor. Use a controller and you wont have a problem, mine doesn't and it ain't no stock 5.0 like old mate says.

Re: electric water pump

I was looking at buying one myself but decided against it. The cost of these electric water pumps if amazing. Its cheaper to buy a american waterpump and put a gilmer belt drive on instead. Well thats what the performance shop told me. Buy the time you buy the pump/module to run it and get someone to wire it up/ install it it cost heaps.

What have you got? electric fans? and a electric water pump?

This ones tricky with the timer. You need it so when the ignition is switched off the thermos and electric pump keeps running. But no other accesories other wise youl have a flat battery mabey check the current draw on each item and work out how long u can keep the thermos and pump running for.

I done this on my bronco .I had the fans keep running after the car was turned off until the water cooled enough to turn the thermos off.
I had two 600cca batterys which helped other wise the battery would die.
I think from memory the power came staight from the battery not the ignition to the thermostate so the thermostate turned it off
