Hello everyone I'm trying to buy a water pump for my friends 1981 208 GTB and I can not figure out wich water pump I need. I am told there are large bearing and small bearing housings. Would anyone know which type I need to get ?
Thanks so much

Giovanni :)

There are indeed two sizes of bearings. As I understand it, early cars had the small bearing, late ones had the large, but I don't know the cutoff. If you are buying a new pump, get the large one because it will bolt right on. It is cheaper, however, to rebuild the old water pump. Many of the vendors provide that service, so they will use your old pump and replace whichever bearings fit. You can buy rebuild kits and do it yourself, but I really don't know which bearings you have. Good luck -Steve
