Auxiliary turbo pump

As far as I could see, most of the steam came out from the joint between the black impeller housing and the motor. Couldn't see that joint well when the pump was in the car, because of the rubber donut that mounts the pump and covers the joint. I did not see any option for repairing it, and I did not know precisely where the leak was-- presumably there must be some kind of a seal on the motor/impeller shaft.
Anyway, I was able to get a good one at a reasonable price, on Ebay. Pro (for) the phylaxis (health) of my engine, I thus decided to fix what broke. As for the heater valve I am going to replace, that is another piece of 13 year-old plastic that often breaks, that only costs $20, and will save that much in antifreeze and aggravation.
