hi every one
i,m working on my overheating today i just bought an after market water pump ( BECK/ARNLEY) is any body have an idea witch is better the dealer water pump or after market i heard that after market water pumps the clearance are not as good as the rebuilt dealer one .
and what kind of sealer to put for the water pump
The Beck/Arnley pump should work just fine...they have been making and selling parts a long time and are considered a good part source...I do not know what you mean about the (clearance) difference...a water pump is about the most basic moving part on the car...not any adjustments involved...unless there is some kind of weird failure history for this type pump...As for sealant...I use something called Hylomar flange dressing...it does not dry out and is made for that type of fitting.....of course there are many,many types of sealants out there,and sometimes it is just what you like....If you use silicone rubber...just make sure not to put it on very thick to avoid it squeezing out and getting in the cooling system.....some people do not use any sealant and just rely on the gasket to do its job alone....
hi every body.
