Where can I get a small water pump?

I need a small dc water pump. I plan on making some kind of radiator for a cooling head on my ofna buggy. I can't seem to find a small pump anywhere though. Do you guys know where I can get one?

Check R/C boats, some of them have belt driven water pumps and electric ones to keep the head cool at low speed. I think I got about 20000 hits when I searched the topic on this thing called The World Wide Web.
Also herehttp://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=590807 is the link from a similar thread here on this site.

obviously you are going to have a small headertank somewhere, perhaps a washer squirt pump off a wrecked car in a junkyard.

I'll check the used computer junk store. The car pumps are to big.

Has anyone considered a Peltier module[s]? I've no experience except reading a little about them but figured there might be away to adapt them to our hobby [boats/cars].Might work out especially in or as a heat transfer device.Just tossing the idea out there,,,,.

I have used the motor and pump unit from a windscreen washer water sprayer from a car. Most can be picked up for about $5 from a car wreckers and do a pretty good job. Hope this helps.

These are really good but there a lot over my price range.
Anything from 0 to 25 dollars
