Shortened v8 water pump?

Hi guys, I saw a great item on here (actually my introduction to this forum that I found whilst searching the net) where a much shortened water pump for an mgb was made/sourced? Can anybody advise who can supply one or remanufacture one for me? I have a similar requirement for my lightweight landrover that I am building over a disco chassis, the V8 is much nearer the front panel. I live in OZ so similar vehicles are few and far between, thanks in advance!
Cheers Richard..

So... this is probably the article you saw, right?

Yes indeed it was, but dumb 'A'. Me has realised the rest of the pulleys may then give me a problem and I am trying to keep all ancillaries, (advice welcome) so far I think I might just get enough room if I change the rad to something like the dimensions of a jeep sport one with two internally mounted fans and maybe a centre one external. I know it will not look pretty but on this type of vehicle it may be ok.... it's work in progress so I'll play some more. Thanks for responding🙂
