Have you tried the usual places - Ford, Repco, Bursons, etc?

Davies Craig developed an electric water pump and contoller about 1 year ago. For all out performance, you could look into this, as it uses no engine power to run it.

It replaces yr water pump and thermostat so you have full control over the engine temp. I think it was $300-$400 for the stuff.

ARM79, have you got any more info on this.

The ideal would be to have an electric water pump controlled by thermo fans so at shut-down the water would still be circulating through the system and would cool the motor down in an orderly fashion. No more heat soak, no more cracked heads. Whether the battery could handle it is another matter.

The info is on Davies Craig website- www.daviescraig.com.au

They make all the aftermarket thermo fans and fan clutch plates.

I remember reading that the idea of the pumps is to:
1. Replace existing pump. No more wasted engine power
2. Replace thermostat. Control the temp of the engine better
3. Run after engine shutdown. As you said, to cool the engine in a more reliable fashion.

Sounds like a good idea, you would need the pump running at start-up to warm the engine, so the cool down thingo could be done with a switch on the dash (say auto shut-off after 5 mins) to run the pump and the fans. Needs further investigation.

Thanks ARM79

From what I saw on their website, the pump controller you can buy as well will automatically control all pump functions, including the cool down after engine is turned off. There would be no human intervention apart from setting the thing up.

Just read the site. Cool. I like the idea of controlling the water temp by turning a pot with a screwdriver, colder for performance, hotter for fuel economy. This is the best idea for cars since inflatable tyres. I'm gonna get one. (Santa, Santa!)
