My 57 Chevy over heats at idle during long lights, heavy traffic or construction stops. I would like to try a smaller diameter pulley on the water pump on my small block 350 crate engine with a short pump. At 30 mph and faster, it runs at a cool 190 degrees. Stopped for any time for construction zones, or heavy traffic you can see the temp. gauge rise to 230 degrees in a few minutes. I have a 4 core radiator, a shroud, and use a 185 degree thermostat. Any ideas on where to purchase a 5 to 6 inch water pump pulley? Thanks for any info. Gary
