    Default 70el78c water pump

    We had the fins on the motor to run it while working on it. All of a sudden the water stopped coming out the end hole
    Could this be a clog and what should I do. We did order a new water pump kit and the motor has been sitting and taken apart. but before we put it back together is there any thing someone would recommend.

    Sounds like water pump impeller failed, Use a good sealer with new gaskets&o-rings. Make sure surfaces are prepped properly. Some grease on upper spline of driveshaft. Make sure shift mechanism works smoothly before assembly.An assistant comes in handy
