    electric water pumps

    im thinking of going with a remote electric waterpump to replace the one on the v4 as it will allow the engine to fit in the chassis better. the standard one is fowling on the steering box!!
    has anyone any advice on one that would work for a 2lt v4, are they reliable?

    agree with sid, not realy suitable for long term use, race or occasional short distance road use will be ok

    will be fine, lots of modern cars use them. The pump will pump constantly not like a belt driven water pump whose volume is dictated by the engine. Make sure you run the switch through a relay and keep your battery and alterator tip top and you should ahve no problems.

    I hope it'll have a big red warning light on the dash or keep your eyes on the guage. I would not trust one on a long trip.
    There's no replacement for displacement.

    I don't like anything like that electrical to be honest , good when they work but too many external items that can throw it out of whack . I remember a faulty petrol pump in the Highlands, everything tested OK but it had to be wired to the sidelights instead of ignition to make it work, thanks to the 'Northern Crew' for sorting it out back then .

    Safely at home in the garage the cuplprit turned out to be the NEW fusebox I fitted to ensure reliability
