    Talking Buick Skylarc 1961 - water pump need one

    Hi fellows,

    I'm I'm looking for a refurbished 1961 Buick Skylark (,215 motor) water pump.
    Anyone have a link to a store or supplier that would have one, in USA or Canada?

    also, the aluminum Land Rover v8s from 1966-2004 are the same basic design ( 215ci == 3.5L ), just in metric. so you can use things like Rover timing covers and water pumps. you'll just need to make sure that the Rover pump uses the same depth shaft as what you're replacing.

    Buick part number is 1389457 for non A/C cars. Rebuilder Cardone uses number 58107.

    Buick part number is 1388513 for A/C cars. Cardone number is 58108.

    Www.napaonline.com shows both to be available. Www.rockauto.com and www.oreillyauto.com show the A/C unit available.
