Waterpump

Post by WP_Patrol » 27 Jan 2018 09:42

I took off the waterpump and there does not seem to be much wrong with it, the impellers are slightly worn. I think I might have wasted money buying a new one.

Or will the corroded impellers make a big difference?

I have seen way worse, but actually still looks fine. That being said the piece of mind will be in the new pump.

The corrosion on that impeller would not make a difference IMHO, but any pitting on the surface of an impeller will increase cavitation.

Use the new one...

The problem usually lies with the bearing/seal. And then the inconvenience of having to drain and replace expensive antifreeze, removing the radiator and fanbelts. Rather just buy a good quality new pump.

I see you bought a new pump & you pulled the old one out so best idea is to fit the new one...

Note sure why you opted to pull the old one - now that you have done so best is to put a new one back.
