Jeff, I agree with the others that suggest you ditch the electric water pump. Unless the pony will only be a drag strip car that pump will just be a liability. imho.

Hopefully just a water pump and pulley and correct belt. The parts store should be able to help with bolts. The pulley you might find new but I'm sure you can find one in a scrap yard or online.
It could be much more complicated if the original accessories have been changed.

may need a new fan, poss. fan clutch and shroud to fit fan.  I would try to heat up the sensor to see if it comes on, with a heat gun or torch on the metal, with car off.  Or jump the pump and see if there is flow and or also jump the fan and let the car run.  If can idle and stay cool running then the cooling system is ok, just need to locate the sensor in a hotter spot. Does rock auto or similar carry those parts.  might at least have an exploded parts view and prices.  some used to need and extension to get the fan close to the radiator.  is it a serpentine belt? if so you may need a special pully or go back to v-belt.  Hate to ask, but have you had a follow up conversation with seller to see if there were any issues before?  Good luck

I bought a motor out of a van,300-6 Ford. I was swapping a V8 to this 300. I had a little bit of a hard time finding all of the brackets I needed for the swap, power steering, alternator and so on. Don't be shocked if parts are kinda hard to find.

I think to begin with, it is going to stay electric. This is a hobby car. Fun car. I'll try to play with what is there, then go from there.  I though I had mentioned that I know the pump and fan both work.  With me new dialectical system I can easily isolate to run, or jump and run any of the add on electrical components.

and the one heater house port in there was plugged with red silicone gasket sealer.


This has me wondering. Was it intentionally plugged or excessive use of silicone?  Could there be more in the system?

I think they just had a little too much around the hole, and it squished into the opening. The only issue to begin with was the fan didn't kick on at temp. It didn't overheat that I know of. Its only been tested setting idling, so without a fan, its boaund to eventually get to warm. Going down the road I figure it would have been fine.

Run a manual switch, then just watch the gauge and turn it on when you need it

I had a similar problem on an engine that the electric fan would not come on but fan was factory, not aftermarket. The problem was solved by installing a thermostat with a lower temperature rating. I think it had a 195  deg thermostat and I switched it to a 185 deg. Don't know if this would apply to your situation.

Jeff, did you put the new manifold on with the sensor port yet? I am hoping this will change the dynamic and you might learn something more. If you did, curious to hear what you learned.

I'm not sure about your problem but I do agree with the diagnostics of most other members. One thing I would add is that small block fords come with water pumps which turned in one direction when they had v belts ,and the opposite direction after they went to serpentine belts. I'm sorry that i dont remember which is which,and am not where my reference books are.

The new thermostat housing with the new sensor port cured the issue. At 185 the fan kicks on.  I took it for an innitiation drive around the block.(holy crap)
When i got back, fan was off, and came back on after sitting at idle a couple minutes.

Seems to be good to go. On to whatever next needs attention.
