Jon, First the water pump, what brand did you use? I would only recommend a
Hepu, has a bronze impeller, rather pretty for a water pump. Second the
timing belt, could you have over tensioned it? if you did I would replace
both, we could hook up, let me use Mr. Ear, and umm, cop a feel on the belt
tension Best Regards, Bill
