I ordered a new CSR BB water pump back in December the 12th as a Christmas present (from Jegs). I was told a week later it would not make the Christmas deadline and would come first week in January - as Jegs called CSR. End of January, I called and then was told February. Then March, now April. Jegs has been great in staying on top of this but today I have heard (not from Jegs) that CSR is out of business ? Does anyone know anything on this ?
Did you check with Summit?
I ordered something from Jeg's last year and kept getting backorder messages month after month.
I never thought about it,but I went to Summit and they had it in stock.
Yes back ordered there also.......
They were last week. I ordered a filler neck adaptor from them Monday and got it Thursday. They were great to deal with. I'd call Summit or call CSR direct.
I would cancel that order and buy a Meziere instead. Much more reliable from what I hear.
they've been on life support for many years with some parts and replacement parts not available. I wouldn't buy anything from them and Meziere water pumps are the benchmark.

They haven't had a steady supply of inventory since Goza went out of business. Meziere for the win.
x3 for Meziere
I heard about the long lead times several years ago so I ordered a spare WP motor. Summit had it on BO for about 2 months and later sent a post card saying they had to cancel my order. I ordered from Jegs and received the motor about 7 months later. But, I have a spare now. lol.
A number of years ago I bought a used CSR water pump that I continued to use for a long time after. When I built my new engine, it failed on the dyno....I did call about a replacement motor for it but that was pretty much a wasted call....So stepped up and a Meziere on it...been happy ever since. At least they support their product and have stuff if you need it.

CSR pumps can be made to last but you Best Buy a spare motor when you buy the pump or you will be back in same boat when it fails. I have rebuilt almost new ones for local racers just to get them the confidence they need in them and never had one fail after that. The seals are the other weak link in them as they come unglued and most racers don’t know it till the motor itself fails.
The count on repaired pumps is around 350 CSR and 25 Mezieres and that should speak volumes for the different in quality.

I had much better luck and performance with the CSR pump than I did with Maziere. I am less than impressed with Maziere and think it is overpriced to.
I am glad others here have had good luck with the Maziere and if CSR can not produce it them you may need to consider it.
