FlowKooler water pump prevent engine overheating. Each impeller is designed to generate higher flow rates and increase system pressure. Increasing coolant flow rate through the block reduces the cycle time between the engine and the radiator providing more opportunity for heat exchange. When flow rate is maximized, the higher flow rates raise engine block pressure to prevent the formation of steam pockets in the water jacket and the vapor barrier that can cause hot spots on cylinder walls.
Each of our billet aluminum impellers is precision machined to achieve tighter clearances between the vanes and the casting volute. Each is shrouded to contain the flow. This design combination generates higher flow rates that reduce the cycle time between the source and sink. It is that simple.
Our impeller designs achieve a more efficient flow curve to conserve valuable horsepower. Less power used to move the coolant through your system means more power you have to move your tires down the road.
Higher flow rates help cool at lower speeds but they also raise the block pressure at higher rpm. Building that pressure helps prevent hot spots & steam pockets from forming on cylinder walls. Higher pressure also prevents early detonation and reduces the onset of cavitation.
All good stuff!
Your coolant begins to deteriorate almost immediately. FlowKooler CNC machines each impeller from corrosion resistant 6061 billet aluminum and coats each one with a Type II Class II military grade anodize surface coating.
Sometimes people say nice things, sometimes they say nothing, sometimes they say crazy things. We collect them.
Called with a question and whomever answered knew exactly what I was asking (direction of the impeller/user error) and explained to me how the water pump worked for my old CJ. Got it installed and it works great! Thanks!
I'm running a FlowKooler 351c high flow water pump since last year. Of course I have no overheating or any issues since the quality is superb. But I'm about to overhaul my pulleys. Should I use the same diameter stock size water pump pulley or get a high flow one?
Since I'll replace all of my pulleys not only because of the water pump I want the best pairing I can get. Otherwise I'd leave it alone if I wouldn't replace all of them.
Thank you and have a great day!
This was borrowed form a corvette forum in response to a question about lowering the engine temperature by lower the thermostat temperature. I love its simplicity.Read More
Of course consult your manual but here are common torque settings for bolts used in water pump installationsRead More
We had an call for help on routing heater hose lines for a 351C and scrounged up an image for the 302 and 351C. Hoping this connects the dots for the next poor soul staring at his block in wonderment.
