Alternative water pump 6.0

I have found a new water pump with a metal impeller not plastic for almost half the price of the Alliant AP63503. It is the ACDELCO 252-885 Professional Water Pump. Good quality pump that won't cost a arm & a leg.

ACDELCO 252-885 04.5-07

ACDELCO 252-886 03-04

Other than a metal impeller, what makes it a good upgrade?

This pump is described as a premium aftermarket replacement pump. The fact that it comes with the metal impeller a plus. I would guess it would last about same as factory pump. It's up to you on what you buy and I am just giving info on another option available that I found. The impeller looks more like factory design than Alliant does.

That looks like a plastic impeller, you can even see the impression from the injection molding.

Agreed

the pictures I found of the AC delco units are injection molded media ( plastic) beyond a shadow of a doubt


you can't make metal take that shape without casting or billet steel

and it would be to heavy and cost much more
thats why BPD uses CNC machined billet aluminum


any metal ( steel) impeller 6.0 pumps I have seen are the traditional stamped steel design

if i wanted metal and didn't want to pay for a BPD quality, rebuild able unit ( to late already did lol)
i would drop 120.00 on a lifetime warranty from Dieselsite unless i could find a similar unit from our sponsors

When I had my engine work done I opted to replace my Waterpump because the truck was pulled apart at the time. Only one option in my book on something as vital as the Waterpump. BPD and it has to be black so it matches the paint on our engines. What paint they managed to spray on it. Cheap bastards.

I put a BPD water pump on mine while I had the engine apart. I am very glad that I did because when I pulled off the original pump, I found a crack on the center of the impeller (where it slides onto the shaft).

Now I know I won't have to worry about it again!!!
