Call any P-car parts place and just tell them that you need a 85.5+ water pump. They might bring it to your attention that there is a turbo pump with adapter kit available for a bit more money - but since you won't be driving it for the duration, I'd go with the basic one. It's durable enough.

Were you going to change the belts while you have everything apart? As a 911-914 owner, if you were a waterpumper fan before this job, you'll REALLY be one afterwards!

Unfortunately, a waterpump isn't exactly a "throw it in there and drive away" repair - got to get a bunch of stuff out of the way first (timing belts etc.)

Curious to know what happened to the waterpump as well.

my ex-dealer mechanic buddy is working on the ac in the 914. he left the keys to the 944. told me to drive it and make a list (it's been sitting for a few months) fun, well balanced car. i like it.

the pump is starting to get loose. i need to fix it before something BAD happens. (there is a new timming belt, clutch kit and other crap in the back seat.) i was just going to change the pump and let him set the belt/cam tension when the teener is done.

she's a 2.5l , but i have no idea what year it is. the id sticker on the fender well flaked off where the model info was written.

vertex was generally cheaper on the rebuilt pumps, but i am supporting the bird fetish.

tryan... that VIN places the car in 85.5. That's the "F' in the VIN (G='86,
H='87...)
