You should be given the Stovebolt Engine LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD for this item and write-up alone.

Of course, your knowledge, wisdom, and website also deserves OTHER lifetime achievement awards.

Has anyone experienced overheating problems with Dave's adapter? If not, getting down in the weeds about pump volume specifications sounds a lot like nitpicking. The proper fan position on the older trucks is probably at least as important as the volume of coolant that's being moved.

Who else thought the old water pump was way too small?
