Re: help: short life water pump :(

Blaufergnugen has a great quality pump that I've used and have had no
problems with. Also coolant plays a big role. Are you using a silicate,
phosphate free coolant? I do. Havoline Dexcool. Be sure to lube the o ring
with moly grease before install. Clean the surefaces before that.
