    For a 1971 (non-Z28), how do I tell the difference between a long and short water pump?

    Should a long or short be used?

    Like mentioned you should use the long water pump. Anyway pay attention to the thick bushings that came with the vintage air kit. I also had pulley alignment problems with my VA installation until I payed special attention to where they went. If you dont figure it out I can take some pictures of where I put mine and forward them to you.
