Took a ride in the Chevy and uh oh ....

Post by NeonLeon on May 21st 2016, 8:59 pm

Filled her up with gas and she wouldn't start. I pushed it away from the pumps and figured I would let her sit a while .... till I saw the stream of antifreeze pouring out from underneath. Sad Rolling Eyes

I walked down the block and got a flatbed to take her home. Turns out that both front seals on the water pump let go ... a water pump that had less that 10 miles on it. Luckily I saved all the e-mails from Summit Racing and they overnight-ed another one. They are reconditioned but it is hard to find anything new for an 80 year old motor. So the new pump came today and I hope to get it in tomorrow.

Never heard of a water pump lasting 10 miles.  What a let down.  Oh well it takes a little time to get all the bugs out.  Bet it felt good for 10 miles though.  ARK

It was disappointing. There isn't much room to work behind that grill. Rolling Eyes
