Jamie,
Try this company WWW.IsuzuTruckParts.com. Tom's Truck Center is located in Southern California and is very helpful and know the product. There maybe an Isuzu Truck dealer in your state, if they can't help you Tom's I am sure can.
Good Luck
Tom

Thank you, Tom. I telephoned them this morn ing and they have a part they think will fit. I hope the 1987 6BD1A engine is the same as the 1983.

Jamie, when last week I had my trouble up your way I ended up at Ayden Diesel. These guys rock! I was in the bay for almost an hour and they didn't want any money.... Bottom line is that they know what they're doing and are working hard to earn your business.

Call Charles Harper at 252-746-7700 or 866-946-7700 toll free.

Tell them I said hello.

I left them and said thanks to the young apprentice who did a reconnect on my temp sender with a $20 bill.

Charles called me just as I was getting in to Sumter, just to see if I made it home. Rare help in a business world these days.

Did you find a water pump that fit the 83? Mine is fine but I want to have one in stock.

Thanks to all who responded. The story ends here. After two wweks of searching and finding only the wrong part (the pump for the 1987 6BD1A will not fit!) we sent the old pump in for a rebuild. It is in place and working well, and we're back on the road. Again, thanks for your help.

That's scary. Is there no source for replacements, except the junkyard? Where did you have yours rebuilt?

Quick followup - no problem, they are in stock with Isuzu parts. I got one through Hamilton Engines in Portland. Also a bit of a surprise: how many of us know that the waterpump on these motors has a grease fitting? Ought to last forever if you can (and do) grease it.
