LS water pump fittings

Truck ls water pump has the stainless 1.25 barb pointing 180 degrees from shere I need it to. How are they attached to the aluminum and can I pull it out or spin it or do I have to cut it and weld. Also on the t-stat housing does anyone make a straight out or tapped version, it is also the wrong direction. If anyone has made one and has a drawing I would love to see it.

CSR makes a straight TStat housing that uses a SBC tstat, Jegs has it.
S&P makes a polished straight TStat housing

Here is an article on modifying a stock TStat housing...

Be careful what you do inside that waterpump, if you make a wrong move, it could cause lots of issues. There are a lot of threads in here that are related to this topic, some answers will be in there.

To answer your questions directly, the outlet is pressed in, it's hard to remove them without deforming them to the point of being garbage. If you do get it out, you can do whatever you want in the area, just make sure to use some good sealer and it should be fine.

For the thermostat area, they make straight ones. Most I've seen dont use a thermostat but there are a few out there that do. They are right around $50-100 on average.

I made my own:

We sell the fittings to change the water pump over to -16 for the thermostat housing.

You can pull the top stainless piece out and weld a -16 bung in its place if you want to.

Give us a call at 615-962-9135 to get you set up with what you need

Can you explain or point me to some of the threads that you mention? I am not finding much with a search

I made my own as well. Really not too hard.





Guess I never got any pictures of it on.

So I was able to put a bar into the top neck and with a circle motion creept out the fitting also added a break free oil. Very easy. Cleaned it put some RTV on it and tapped it back in with a plastic block. The t-stat is still in the works.

I know this looks booty-fabbed compared to all the pretty machined aluminum so far in this thread but my rockwell pinion came up too close to the t-stat housing to have one there at all. So I made a "remote LS t-stat housing" that allowed me to put the t-stat anywhere I wanted:



I blocked off the stock bypass port and put a plate over where the t-stat housing used to be. I bored a hole in the side of the pump and TIGged a new water neck coming off the side.

The aluminum housing is a straight wall and the barb is slip fit into it. If you remove the hose and put a 1.25" bar into the ss barb and rotate back and forth and arround, the ss barb will start moving or slipping in the aluminum housing as it is moving, pull up on the barb. It is a slow process, but damage free if you don't over bend the ss barb.
