Replacing the water pump
After having a laugh finding out how much a water pump was at Halfords, I placed an order with Rimmer Bros (www.rimmerbros.co.uk) and soon had a new water pump in my hands and set about ripping all the old stuff off. Sadly, after pulling the pump off, I was greeted by the sight of a terminally mullered water pump housing and rusted to buggery heater return pipe. I took another deep breath and placed an order with Canleys. It arrived quickly but the pump housing didn't have the tapped hole for the temperature sender, so it had to go back! Worst of all was that after all that the noise was still there and was now much, much louder!
