Here may be a much easier and MUCH cheaper solution that worked for me.  TRW 
part # for water pumps that fit P6B and SD1 is FP1318---this is the 'short 
nose' for a Buick   GMB makes a pump with an even nicer casting than the 
TRW.  The GMB #  130-1420.

I used these numbers probably about 8 years ago, but I imagine they are 
still good (or can be cross referenced).  I took my water pump in to make 
sure that it was a perfect match.  I actually found the GMB model at a local 
Checker (probably also at Auto Zone/Pep Boys, etc.) As it turns out the 
output shaft on the new pump was about 1/2 inch longer.  I took it to a 
local mechanic with my original pump and he shaved off the shaft to match 
the original pump length for about $25.   If memory serves me right I paid 
under $50 for the GMB pump and it has worked great ever since.
