    I have a 1957 GMC 2.5 Ton with a GMC 270 CID Straight Six. I need a water pump on top of other parts but right now i am focusing on getting a water pump, does anyone know where I can get a new pump?

    New? Not likely. Do you have an old one? I had these guys rebuild mine 11 years and 40,000 miles ago. Still works good. WATER PUMP REPAIR

    FWIW ;

    NAPA auto parts stores used to be able to send out your old water pump for rebuilding .

    No fair teasing us about your 1957 Task Force 2.5 tonner and not providing any pictures. we don't care if it's nice or nasty, we like old trucks here .

    Might this be a "Viking" ? .

    Yes!! I am hoping to make it into an upgraded Mater. I am keeping everything on it including patina.

    TOWmater #biggrin# .

    I find it amazing that some folks try to claim Towmater is a Ford product when it's clearly a Task Force truck .

    I still miss my '55 2.5 ton Chevy tow truck and I only had it ten or fifteen years, it's been longer than that since I let it go .
