I had a fun couple of hours yesterday changing the water pump on my P38.
It started leaking after I flushed it last week, not surprising considering the shit that came out of the radiator when I first got it.
There was a coppery looking paste coming out. AFAIK thats a stop leak product.

You can see the shit in the gap for the o-ring.

Its also been replaced with a pump with a metal impeller.

K-Seal leaves tiny coppery coloured bits everywhere, dead giveaway as soon as you take the header tank cap off.

I thought k seal was that bright yellow stuff.
Anyhow, I think I've flushed most of it out now.
Doing thermostat on Friday. Should have done at same time as pump. :)

Ah, that stuff

Anyhow, they must have put a shed load in, the amount that came out of the radiator.

Facebook is totally shite if you want to find anything. I can guarantee if you want to find a post, you never will again. Bloody hate it.

I think the leaking water pump was probably caused by a wobbling fan and viscous coupling.

I changed it when I got it.

26 August 2019 - 18:35

Thermostat done last Friday. So much easier when fan is off.

It's now sitting rock steady on the gauge.

That opens my Google drive 😳

I hate electrics,
Can anyone give me a pointer on solving or at least temporary bypass so air suspension will level.

My right hand front door lock is not working but does not give problems with door open messages etc. Motor I believe is goosed.

I know tear is earthed through the same front lock.

Help please :)

Cheers Gilbertd

So a microswitch in tailgate maybe iffy or latch.
At least I know where to look

I'd say water pump if you have play.
Piece of piss to change. Remove fan and cowl.Wind 2 bolts in to the provided threaded holes in existing water pump and gently screw them in and they push water pump out. Clean area and lubricate new o-ring with vaseline and insert.

I changed thermostsat a week later but its much easier while pump off etc.

Ha, I just replied to your other post LOL

I made a tool to hold the pulley still while using a 32mm spanner on the fan hex.

I just used some flat steel bar approx 12mm x 2-3mm with a hole drilled near the end big enough to fit one of the pulley bolts.
Put that on the pulley and heave with a spanner.
