Just wondering if a water pump from an '86 eta motor would work on an '89 iX motor?.......the part numbers are different but they seem to be identical, anyone ever tried this?

Won't work. The hose routing is different on the older style, and later style cooling system.

like you have one of each in your hand? The 86 should look obviously different. Rule #1 when buying parts for the IX, is don't go by the picture if its an ebay ad or online warehouse.

I don't have them in my hand I was just looking on realoem.
Come to think of it that's right the hose routing would be different, I think I need to smoke another one lol*smoke*, I don't know what the **** I was thinking*drink*
