    Well today I have fitted the new cast water pump and thermostat housing. It was a high quality product I am well pleased, bought from China via aliexpress. My original housing has not failed, only the water pump bearing and seal, so I have a housing if anyone needs it, I believe you can buy just the pump. One small hangup was the mounting of the sender was a plate and bolt on the original plastic one and the cast one required a spring clip slide. Being New Years day I have to hand make one, no big deal. A teadiuos job that took me two half days. I also took the time to clean out the inlet chambers and the carbon on the back of the valves which was more then I expected to see as I always run 98 fuel.
