Hey, this is the machine I have been posting about. I consider the water pump a devil in disguise as far as removal and replacement. Only 56k original miles. It overheats so I had the radiator done and thought what the heck, might as well replace the water pump too. Oh how innocent we novices are! Cracked the gasket, bought another on ebay, but he sent five. Does anybody need water pump gaskets? Anyway, after 4 batched attempts finally got the pump installed. Now I'm waiting on the delivery of those two cushions that go with the two top radiator bolts. Ordered from Spiderpoint, so who knows when they'll get here. I did bleed the system and replaced the thrmostat but it still overheated on a day in the 90's with the air on. The car was passed on to me from my sister. I said no to her for about a year and then relented knowing that when it arrived I would become possessd and obsessed with the car. I live in the Phoenix area so this heating problem is a big deal. I want to drive with the air on and cruise on some day trips! Temp today may reach 110! I do have one thing to brag about, I installed the new top!
possessed and obsessed,
