Is there a quick test to see if my water pump is working or not? I know I need to replace the radiator and will change out the thermostat while I'm in there. Figured I might as well put a new water pump on as well while I have everything off, but don't want to if thats not the problem. Any suggestions? Its a 990 model

Slacken the generator/alternator mountings off, loosen the fan belt and try turning the fan by hand. If it turns freely and smoothly and doesn't leak, it'll paddle water round. While you have the thermostat out have a look to see if you have a limescale problem.

PS water pump rebuild kits are (or were last time I bought one about 6 or 7 years ago) available if it does appear to be screwed.
Much cheaper than a new pump.

There is now a growing market for "As found" machines. Which as machines get rarer, has found the birth of a new industry....one of the "procurement agent". These agents appropriate as much old machinery as possible then inflate prices at auctions. So at what price enthiusiasm? We are now seeing poor machines which 3 years ago ma ... [Read Article]
