    Default Where to buy water pump bolts/studs?

    I need a whole new set of water pump bolts/studs for my '89 CV. Where do I buy these things? None of the parts sites I've looked at show them.

    Edit: I was searching "bolts" instead of "studs" on the parts sites. Found this: http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/de...ater+pump+stud

    I'm assuming this is the right set.

    I went with the mustang bolt kit.

    Found out the kit does not have enough of the proper sized bolts so I then purchased another. Pissed that I still did not have all the sizes I need (one odd ball size that no mustang kit has) I had to grab it from a junkyard. A lot of wasted money on my part. Mustang Kit will get you some of the way there but you will still be missing some.

    This does not answer you initial question but should steer you away from what I did.







    I also found that some of the arp mustang bolts were just a bit to long so a washer or proper stock bolt was required.

    Thanks for the info. Being it's Labor Day, Oreilly Auto was the only store open. I had to drive to all three stores since each store only carries one of the kit that I linked to above. $10 a kit. Three kits seems like it will suffice. The long stud is replaced by a bolt in the kit, but I think I can clean up and reuse my long stud.

    Why is there not a complete kit for these engines with the appropriate studs? Shame on the aftermarket.

    Has anyone ever tried F150 bolt kits? I honestly know jack about the truck accessories, but perhaps that bolt set is more fitting, or between that and the Mustang one you can get a full set.

    ugh, I just broke one of the long water pump studs and can't find one anywhere - anyone know where to buy one of the long water pump studs? I'm amazed these don't exist!

    thx, yeah I did buy that kit but it doesn't have the really long stud that I broke. I guess I'll use the long bolt from that kit and clearance the accy bracket if need be. One less mounting stud on the AC compressor side should be ok.
