where to buy/rebuild a '52 Hornet water pump

I see Jeremy Burris in the WTN rebuilds splasher pumps. I'll check with him regarding my situation. Might you have any suggestions?
Thank you.

    Pretty sure Dale Copper sells brand new ones (not rebuilt)

    I just bought a new pump from eBay, in New Jersey, it is working fine so far.

    I expect there are a few others that sell the same pump.

    Now I need a 160 thermostat which Dale doesn't supply. Any one have one for sale?

    Devin go to my website and select cooling which brings you to a page where you will find suggestions for making your cooling system more efficent. 


    Use Mr Gasket thermostat available from local auto parts stores or on line

    thank you! According to Dale, I'll need the correct Hudson thermostat otherwise I'll need to modify the waterpump. Do you concur?

    Devin I am using the bypass mod with a mr gasket thermostat with Dales new water pump installed on 2 different Hudson engines.  Proper cooling with a lower max operating temperature.

    Here is the thermostat I use, more than double the flow potential. Shown with the "normal" one used.
    Also be sure you are using the correct WP pulley for correct water flow rate: 5 inches in diameter is best. 2 cents~~~
