    Pretty sure there is. I think the water outlets come out in different places.

    This is true. '57 is the ONLY year where the lower water oulet points towards the passenger side. If yours is going I may suggest taking it to a rebuilder it is alot less $$$ than finding one that works. Don't ask me how I know this. The pulley hub flange is slightly thicker on the models with A/C but the overall deminsion from the mounting flange to outside of hub surface is still the same.

    Kanter sells rebuilt water pumps; they have a pricey core charge on the '57 model only.

    I agree with Kirk. When I had a '57 Cadillac in need of a water pump, a friend who owned a NAPA store sent my pump to a rebuilder and it was far less than buying one that was already rebuilt.
