Hey,
We're running a 363ci 8.2 deck Dart block with a Jesel belt drive set up for a mechanical fuel pump. We have a complete March pulley setup for a reverse rotation late model belt system.

Here's the problem: The Jesel belt drive system is designed to be used with the Ford Racing M-8501-R352 water pump setup for a Yates style water pump. They didn't tell us this before we bought our Edelbrock water pump, and now we have a port mis-match:

Now, according to the Ford description of the NASCAR water pump housing, it comes with adapters to mount it to a production timing cover.

Question #1:Does anyone have a photo of what these adapters look like? I need to know how thick they are, because it will effect my pulley setup (more $$).

Question #2:Do you think they could be reversed and make my production water pump fit the Jesel belt drive?

Question #3:
Would you have a set of adapters I could buy because you don't need them?

Many thanks in advance. We gotta get this thing on the dyno soon.

Here's a shot of the Ford Racing pump with the two little adapters:

Anybody have a set they didn't use?
