putting a '94/'95 water pump on a '96?

ok so i know that in the '94 & '95 engines are a 203/205 degree t-stat, and they do NOT fit in my '96 because its a different water pump.

can I just install a '94/'95 water pump and then get the 203/205 degree t-stats at any parts house then, since i will have converted to a short stem t-stat?

Yes you can interchange them as long as you use the correct thermostat. Also some have a cast inlet elbow and some have bolted, I still haven't figured out which is suppost to have which though. I just know that the bolted elbows can be a PITA to seal.

yea the whole point of looking into this was to be able to use the cheap, easy to find 204* t-stat from a '95.

we had a NEW '96 with the bolted one and the REMAN '95 was a cast 1 piece.

i bought one also. it IS cheaper than buying a pump, at first anyway. if you replace the t-stat yearly like recommend then it would only take me 2 and a half years to come out ahead, but thats with my employee cost as well.
