You know, when we had such stimulating topics such as: "gbm: The "weep hole" is one of the more initmate parts of the water pump and should be given proper respect to preserve the pump's modesty. The hole is located on the underside of the pump body casting under the main shaft. Ask the pump's permission first and then slide your index finger under the shaft and feel for the hole. If you feel coolant, the pump's front seal has been "weeping"; often you'll see coolant residue if the seal has been leaking over a period of time. Such a condition indicates that the pump is failing and should be replaced before the front bearing begins to grind. It is also a good idea to try to wobble the attached fan (if so equipped) to check for slack in the bearing. Monkey: I made no such inference. The phrase may also be translated into Latin: "Illegitimus non carborundum" if that makes you feel better. And, yes, flyfishing is also a SD favorite activity. I build my own rods and tie my own flies as wel. __________________ SuperDave's timeless wisdom: 1- "Rust never sleeps!" 2- "Given enough time and enough money, anything is possible." 3-"Never say a job is easy until after you have finished it." 4- "Cheap ain't good and good ain't cheap." 5- "Just because a part is "new" doesn't mean it is good: VERIFY it!" 6- "Proper Prior Planning Prevents Poor PerformancePPPPP"
