Not a big noticable difference cranking a cold engine, but it cranks a hell better (faster), when the engine's hot.fasteddie said:Jack - do you notice any differnce in the cranking?? How much smaller is the powermaster then the stock chromed unit?
I bought exactly the same components- except the new style water pump. I just bought a new "old style" WP, but I've got all the old parts for spares, too.HogV8 said:Now I have a powermaster starter , Powermaster alternator and the higher flow water pump. I still have all the old stuff for spares just in case .
The water pump is going on today along with the 950 Demon. Can't wait to see the delta in the water temps!! I also got the finned cover for the pump yesterday and it will be going on as well. The BH won it's first trophy at a local car and bike show in Ft Worth last Sunday . The new pump will look a lot better and I hope will perform a lot better as well!HogV8 said:I had the same problem with summit . It took almost a month and a half to recieve my starter . I called the factory and they were out of small block Powermaster starters also .
As far as the water pump goes , I feel much more confident in the new style pump . Much quieter , water resistant , and much more precision made than the stock pump . Besides the pump being made of stainless steel I think the coolant runs 5-10 degrees cooler and when the coolant temp. raises when sitting in traffic and the fan goes on , the coolant seems to cool down a lot faster.
