What water pump is this?


Recommended Posts

Man, this is sparking memories. I am pretty sure that when I did the 318i m10 swap, I had to put on the 2002 accessories (water pump and alternator) because the 318i pulley spacing did not work out. I am guessing the 318i pully was too close to the radiator for my comfort.

When I talked to you, I was a bit mixed up because the 2002 water pump that I swapped in went bad within a few months of the swap. However, I think I put all of the 318i accessories in a box, in case you want the 318i pulley and fan. If so, let me know and I can check the box this PM.

I checked some notes that I made when I did the motor swap. My notes confirm that I decided to put the 2002 water pump and alternator on the 318i m10 because I felt the 318i fan would be too close to the radiator. I didn't write down any measurements in my notes, but I recall that it would have been too close for my comfort.
