Default Help with King cobra cooling issue

I have a 93 King cobra drive on a Liberator with 454 stock big block. The impeller in the drive failed and there are no more
water pump kits aval. Has anyone added a sea water pump belt driven to eliminate the pump in the outdrive?
Ive been told it can be done, just wanted to talk to someone who has done it.
They did away with the pump on the 95and up years.
Thanks Scott

@ scotty40

Try to find one of the older sea pumps that have the bracket that slides on the outer "snout" of the pump and then pinches the snout when the bolt is tighten down, this allows you to help align up the pulley to belt and makes the installation alot easier

Buddy just picked up the stock kit at the beginning of the year. I'll ask where he got it.
