Was wondering if a car water pump will work on the PCM 5.7 or do you have to use there marine pump.

If your'e talking the circulating pump...it's a Ford, if you mean the raw waterpump? don't know of any car that has one of those!}

yes the circulating pump and a 5.7 is chevy not ford

sorry, my buddy has an MB pcm and his is a Ford, but either way, I belive an automotive pump will work for the circulating pump

educate me - I always thought PCM used Ford and Indmar and Mercruiser used Chevys?

the main difference between a car and marine circulating pump is bronze parts. The marine unit is resistant to corrosion by using a bronze shaft. The automotive version uses a cheaper shaft that can corrode without using an antifreeze. <BR> <BR>In my opinion spend the money on the marine unit.

Auto pumps often have additional ports for heater hoses, temp sensors, etc. You could block those off and use one, I wouldn't. If you search for a Sierra aftermarket pump they are much more reasonalbly priced (brand new) and quality seems very good. I have installed a couple of them.

christopher, Ford quit supplying marine engines several years back, everything made the last 5 years or so is GM.
