Apologies in advance if this has been discussed, but I could not find anything on the subject.

Motor - Later year (76) 440. This motor has never been in the car and will end up being built in the coming months.

Car - 68 Coronet. Rolling chassis at the moment. No Radiator in the car, will need to order one.

Water Pump Housing - Current configuration has the dump on the passenger side, and I want to switch it over to the drivers side. Will I have any issues with brackets, or holes aligning properly?

I'm still learning, so take it easy on me.

Thanks in advance.

I would think you shouldn’t have an issue, normal outlet is on the drivers side. Once you have it bolted on the block everything should bolt right up.

Those late 60s big blocks had the lower radiator hose on the driver side.

One difference that I have found is between the MH pumps ( right side exit) and those for cars (left side exit) is the motor home pumps have a "Sewer Drain" sized water passage inside compared to the car units which have a tiny passage the size of a #2 pencil. Other than that they should bolt right on.

To view different water pumps and what they go on see here:

Water Pump Housings from www.440 Source.com

Notice the difference between the passage in the second picture down there and the the third one....lol.
The pump on my 440 is a right hand exit MH pump....
