So I got talking to my Brother-in-Law Ian.
“So you had the altenator changed? Didn’t you just put a new water pump on at the same time? It’s the sensible thing to do.”
Who knows a thing like that?
Seriously though. The pump is used to one tension from the alternator, change it and it’s not going to like it. For the price of a new pump, they’ve got the car stripped down at that point so why wouldn’t you do it?
Yes. It makes perfect sense… NOW!!!!
Wish we’d known at the time.
