Question 1969 429 Water Pump

I've tried to read all threads on the differences between the '68/69 vs 1970 up water pump but can't find the answer I need.

Question - Can I use the '70 up High Flow (Al) for my 1969? [example - Edelbrock 8866 - Edelbrock Victor Series Mechanical Water Pumps $165 @ Summit]
The newer ones are longer; and I have to change my pulley anyway.
I have a '69 429 Thunderjet that I'm building for a new Cobra build. It looks like there are several High Flow (Al) water pumps for the '70 & up - not much for the '69. I stopped at a speed shop (Power by Ford - Orlando) and the gaskets seem to match up along with the height (length) of the pulley flange (~ 5 3/8"). The water inlet is pointed lower on the '70 - the '69 points to 3:00....shouldn't hurt.

Also my engine has a single grove on the Harmonic pulley - I'll need to change this or it'll slip - right? Also, what will I need to do for the pulley ? Any suggestions ?

Thanks,
PJ

i think on some early lincoln engines you have to replace the timing cover too to use the newer water pumps because the power steering isnt belt driven, its built into the timing cover.
