327 Vigiliante water pump options?

well, my 1966 wagoneer, 327 vigilante, is leaking at the water pump. all the local parts places only have a "remove and rebuild" option. yep, i have to pull it, give it to them to send out for rebuild somewhere on the east coast, and wait to get it back. of course i have to pay for shipping both ways in addition to the rebuild cost, and no guarantee as to how long it will take.

a couple of online parts stores have one listed but it is the same one as for the sbc engines. i didn't think they would be the same, but maybe someone here can shed some light on that. they list this one: GMB 130-1350P for both the sbc and amc 327.

does anyone have a source for a new, rebuilt, or good used water pump specific for my waggy? i'll be posting here in the classifieds for one, but thought i'd just ask here.
thanks.

Isn't the Viligant a GM Buick block that Willys bought tooling from GM for? And if GMB is for GM Buick, then that pump might be a fit.

No the Chevy pump is not the same and no, it isn't a Buick block.

Most water pumps use standard bearings and seals. If all else fails, you can press the hub off and disassemnble the pump. Many times unless the shaft is bad, you can replace the bearings and seals and re-assemble yourself.
