    Powdercoating Waterpump?

    Has anyone done it to a stock unit? besides the outer plate gasket and the o-ring on the drive shaft itself, is there any other gaskets i have to worry about? will it warp the aluminum? thanks all

    I think you have to get the central shaft/impeller and the bearing pressed out of the aluminum body.. I believe thats what they did when I had mine done years ago... then it gets pressed back on to the finished piece

    Powder Coating requires baking which would distort any shift seals. Do a Google search, you might find some already done.

    Post some picks when you get it in.
