    i have a 4AGE 16v bigport from a AE82 and i'm putting it into my AE86, just wanted to know if you can put a RWD waterpump onto the FWD engine and willl it work right?

    also can i still use the FWD flywheel or will i need to change it to fit the RWD gearbox/clutch?

    You can put a RWD waterpump on, but to make it work properly you need to change a whole bunch of parts also, which I think is worth it in the long run.

    whole waterpump (both halves)
    RWD 4A-C or 4A-GE thermostate housing
    waterpump pulley
    alternator brackets
    4A-C or 4A-GE RWD heater tube


    The FWD flywheel and clutch is the same and can be used. You just need to put a little bearing in the crank.

    No, the crank pulley can stay.

    All you need to run a RWD pump is the RWD pulley.

    You don't NEED as such any of the other gear listed, but its a smart way to go for an engine you are converting to RWD.
