Something else you might want to check while there is whether the roller
tensioner is the correct size.  There are at least two distinct roller
tensioners used for the timing belt, one slightly larger than the other. 
If your engine uses the smaller one and the  larger one is fitted it will
overstress the water pump, leading to premature failure.
