Water pump sagas

I have the original sedan working now and have driven it, but as suspected the water pump leaks, so I can't really use it until I sort one that works. I have stripped down a replacement secondhand that Jim sent, and this is a much better housing and seal mating face. However, the seal I have got - the same as the first - doesn't seem to fit in the seat regardless of which way you place it. It just doesn't go into the seat.

So my question is were there different designs, and can you get different seals? The impeller on this replacement one, which I have broke in getting it stripped down, was not in brass like my original one.

Any suggestion would be most welcome

There were 3 types of seal (not interchangeable). Cavalitto did not stock them when I contacted him recently. However, a good machine shop can adapt the housing to a modern seal: this was done successfully on mine, Andrea

Ahh, right. So the objective would be to take out sufficient metal from the wall so the hard rubber surface sits on the face?

That makes sense

Thats great thanks

As I noted on  Dave Kennedy's post, had the housing machined out as per Andrea's comment. Radiator out, rebuilt pump (funny how the first time takes ages, repeat rebuilds/strip-downs, a third of the time), radiator in, and ran the engine for a good long while, and no leaks. So fingers crossed this might have solved it

I'll follow Dave's lead if it starts leaking again

Need to insure the car now and start using it!

Need to start stripping down the new body!
