These seem to be the 2 models for the 2 different housings.


Thanks for the photos and dimentions Ram.

Unfortunately the Saleri is not suitable for the 21073 housings either. The gap is also too big. If you look at my previous photos, you will see the gap when the Saleri was mounted on my 2101 housing. I will forward more photos this evening, and then you will see the gap when  a Saleri gets mounted to my 21073 housing. Gap also too big.

Thanks Danie and ram,

If I understand Danie's measurements correctly, the intake chamber for newer housing is smaller than on the old housing (2101)?

Correct, the intake hole at a 2101  housing is bigger. But that will not cause a better water flow if the gap between the impeller and housing is too big. In fact, I think when the gap is too big, the impeller wil force some water back into the bigger hole - instead of forcing all water into the engine block.

I think all these photos might cause some confusion, therefore I will only forward two more photos:

1. A photo of my 21073 housing - just to prove that I am in possession of a 21073 housing . (At the time the photo was taken, my LGR waterpump was mounted at the 21073 housing)



2. A photo of the gap between the 21073 housing, and the Saleri pump in my possession. Without a gasket installed, the gap is about 4mm. With gasket installed, the gap should be about 5mm:

Summary:

Only 3 owners voted....
There are two types of waterpump housings fitted to Lada NIVAs.
You have to remove the housing to see the number
Saleri replacement watermumps does not fit 100% according to factory recommended settings
BUT
Saleri pumps do fit the housing and will pump water through the radiator and engine (according to the survey you have a 66% chance that you will not experience overheating by fitting the saleri pump.)
It is advisable to remove the pump housing and order a matching pump from OEM supliers if you want to stick to the original spares.

Just for the record, my saleri pump is mounted to a 2101 housing.
