1991 waterpump issues

  1. I have coolant leaking near where my waterpump is. I have already replaced the lower coolant hose from the raditor to the pump and the lower heater hose. Is my water pump bad or do I just need to replace the gasket?
  2. chances are that the water pump shaft seal is starting to go. if you are on the original pump - you are long overdue.
  3. When installing it going from memory some of the bolts go into the water passages. So thread sealant will be necessary. Maurice
