Water Pump Identification

 

As there are many variations of water pumps that have been fitted to the Rover V8 engine over the many years of production we have pictured the most common styles and also detailed as best we can the main vehicles that they were used on.

Please note that these images can be enlarged for a better view simply by clicking on them.

Pre 1976 Non EFi vehicles (2A)

Type 2A (GWP 310) small footprint, alloy top hat type mechanical fan connection boss
These early type pumps can normally be found on the Rover P5, P6 & original MGB V8s, early Morgan Plus 8's, and perhaps some TVRs, all Pre - 1976 models. However, you may also find this type of pump on many kit and custom cars, due the shorter nose length allowing ease of fitting to V8s with front end clearance issues.

Post 1976 vehicles (2B)

Type 2B (QCP 2095) small footprint with output shaft for slide on type viscous coupling and fan


These later type water pumps can normally be found on the earlier Rover SD1s (non EFi), Morgan Plus 8s, Triumph TR8s, TVR V8s, and many more kit and custom cars from 1976. It is also worth mentioning that some companies such as Morgan used this pump with the nose cut shorter to avoid the front cross member.
