Reply To: 1965 Montclair water pump 390 engine
Got the new water pump in today, and everything seems to be working fine. I had a small drip coming out where the thermostat is housed, but I think it stopped. I used some of that goop on the gasket which I think might have screwed up the seal. It only took me about 2 months of weekends to do this job! Ordered the wrong pump from J.C. Whitney. Installed it. The old screws did not fit the fan hub. Called J.C.W. and they said I had the wrong pump. Mama mia. Took it off, and ordered another pump from a local shop. J. C. W. won’t take the other pump back since I had it too long. I guess I will put it on eBay. Anyway, finally am running again, so I am happy. Now to the sticking brakes, leaking power steering hose, and I just noticed the fuel gauge is incorrect.
