Airtex Engine Water Pump for 2005 Workhorse FasTrack FT1261 4.8L V8
The cooling system of your automobile is vital to your engines overall health and longevity. That is why its critical to replace leaking, malfunctioning, cracked or otherwise damaged cooling parts and components in time. Without proper cooling, your engine can crack and seize up, which can lead to engine damage. A water pump is an essential component of the cooling system that circulates the coolant. Its impellers operate on centrifugal force and transfer coolant from the radiator and push it into the engine block. If the water pump is malfunctioning due to leakage, a failed bearing, broken impeller, cracked housing, or any other reason, it can compromise the entire cooling system and lead to the engine overheating. Never ignore a faulty water pump, get a new one from Airtex, a trusted OEM supplier with over 75 years of manufacturing experience.

OE-Partnerships Lead to Quality Aftermarket Pumps
All Airtex aftermarket pumps adhere to stringent OE specifications and design. In fact, Airtex works closely with their OE customers like Ford, GM, and Mazda to develop customized pumps for each specific application. These partnerships set them apart as an OE supplier and enable them to deliver high-performance pumps to the aftermarket that prevent overheating and costly engine damage.

Same Quality for OE and the Aftermarket
Airtex uses the same robotic assembly process for both OE and aftermarket pumps to maintain the highest quality. Pumps are assembled and tested to ensure leak-free and quiet operation that delivers reliable automotive fuel efficiency. Their OE expertise also means these pumps and components meet or even exceed OE specifications.
Fuel Pumps from 1935
Headquartered in northeast Ohio, Airtex was founded by Benjamin Frankel in 1935. Originally named Chefford Master Manufacturing Company, its first products were replacement fuel pump repair kits for Ford and Chevrolet automobiles. During the WWII era, Airtex stopped making auto parts and retooled to support the United States military defense efforts. Then, in the 1970s, water pumps changed from cast iron to aluminum die-cast construction, engines became smaller, operating temperatures rose, and emissions regulations became more stringent. Airtex launched programs to create a product line that would handle the new requirements including in-tank and external electric fuel pumps. In 2006, Airtex and ASC merged to become the “center of water pump excellence” and the new company Airtex-ASC continues to strive to improve upon pump design to ensure the smoothest operation possible.
Covering 250 Million Vehicles
With American vehicles now averaging more than 11 years in age, comprehensive aftermarket parts coverage for the auto supply channel is more important than ever. That’s why Airtex manufactures more than 2,100 units of aftermarket fuel pumps and fuel pump module assemblies that cover more than 250 million vehicles in operation today. Not only does Airtex produce 1.9 million parts in the U.S., they have also chosen to operate their customer call center from their Ohio headquarters to make sure their products are meeting their customers’ needs.
