Adam I would suggest you get a spare water pump gasket as it is a fiddly bugger to fit, it keeps sliding off the pump when your trying to lower it into position lining up the bolts, what i do probally a cheat is fix the new gasket to the pump with sikaflex the night before, it makes reasembly much easier, also put a wee bit of gasket sealer on the small rubber o rings on the metal pipe when you refit it, makes it slide in much easier. Fill the expansion tank and burp the top hose to pump the coolant from the tank through the top hose. My first thought was the rad, but it definitely looks like it's trickling down the front the block and not being sprayed around. I then used the funnel and poured coolant down the top hose into the Alternator and pump, block and anywhere else it finds its way too. They supply both the public and private sector. Is it likely to be the pump itself leaking, or are the hoses in that area prone to perishing and leaks?

Rethread the Belt over the pulleys. I could only find my 23mm, so I carefully undid it without rounding it off.
Refit the Intake Ducting and remember to attach all the pipes back to the shroud and to the ducting. The bearing failed and all the water came out of the shaft. If you have play in it, I would recommend you replace it. Looking at the new pump, identify the 6 mounting bolts. Also have a look at the back of the engine, as there are a few pipes at the back that may leak especially if they have been used for gas conversion. Gaskets are notorious for not staying in position during fitment, so I used some Gastite Sealant compound smeared onto the gasket face to hold the new paper gasket in place. Or could it be something more sinister? I always like to nip up first, then tighten in a Cross ways fashion similar to wheel bolts to ensure the unit is bolted up squarely undistorted.
Fitting the new pump is a bit of a fiddle to ensure the gasket remains in place, position the two metal pipes in place and ensure the pump lines up on two small pegs on the block. I guess I'll have to start pulling things apart and see what's what. I have just had a new water pump fitted 2nd one, 1st was 3 years ago. If you look at it, there is alot of wieght on the shaft because you have the large viscous fan on one end and a little impellar on the other. Can't see exactly where it's coming from, but by a process of elimination, I think it's coming from the vicinity of the water pump. Put the acoustic cover back on.

I have had the sniffer test done and been pressure tested and the results were ok. So a follow on to my previous thread. Next is to loosen the pulley bolts as this is easier with belt tension to hold the pulley Loosen the Belt Tensioner locking bolts 2 of them to relieve the tension on the belt Slip the belt off Unclip the pipes to the Alternator and the top of the Water Pump. Hope you've sorted it anyway and don't forget to bleed your system with the plastic screw on the expansin tank. If you remove the plastic part that houses the pollen filter and get right up on the engine and have a good look down there. Replace the Water Pump Pulley. One of them is hidden underneath the pump and behind the Crank Pulley.
