Is this the correct water pump for a '74 TII?

If that is Walloth &  Nesch's site and they say it is for a tii, then it will be for a tii. No difference by year.

 

I think we are just coming out of a drought on tii water pumps (and brake discs) so the prices are stupid.

Good morning / evening, thanks for the response.

 

That is their site, so looks like OK to order.

 

Any other bits they do better than others that I could add in to the order?

 

Thanks!

I guess 40 bucks is 40 bucks, but how much is shipping? Blunt has them for $239.

 Hi Nick! I'm not familiar with that vendor, any good?

W&N charges something like 69 euros to ship to the us....best to order a bunch of stuff at once to mitigate the shipping costs, if you choose to buy from them. They recently had selected NOS items that weren't advertised...you had to sleuth for them.

Skip,

 

I purchased my first 2002 almost 3 years ago and began the long road of restoration. Like anyone would, I checked around for suppliers and vendors to see who was competitive and priced best. I learned of Steve at Bluntech from this forum, and can honestly say that between FAQ, RealOEM and Steve, I don't think I could've ever gotten as far as I have without them.

 

Steve is extremely knowledgeable, honest and straightforward. He has steered me away from buying things I don't need but thought I did, talked me through tech questions, advised me on what stuff to buy and why and been very generous with his time. He even answers emails on the weekend while my hands are full of grease and I want to kill the stinking car!

 

I can only think of one instance where I challenged him on his prices and found it cheaper (calipers) but it was so insignificant for the value of having him as a resource that I didn't even bother.

 

I have spent thousands of dollars with Bluntech. I'll probably spend another thousand before I'm done. He's my go to vendor like this is my go to forum. Sometimes when you find something that works you should stick with it, even if it costs a little more.

 

(side note: the shop where I'm have my engine work done told me I needed a new fan. He called his supplier while I was standing there and told me the price. I called Steve 10 minutes later and got the same price. Seems fair to me!)

 

Use Bluntech and Steve. You won't regret it.

 

Nick

Agree wholeheartedly with supporting the vendors that support us.

 

Thank again Nick (and all).

Actually 49 Euros flat rate shipping from W&N to U.S. now...

LOL, coffee beans should be OK however.

 

With the engine out now and the car having sat for sometime now would seem to be the time to refresh the brake and clutch cylinders.

 

Are the FAG parts the ones to order?
