Re: 37-39 Water Pumps

is not getting squeezed tight and the leak looks like the seal is leaking.

Re: 37-39 Water Pumps

Run the pumps for a 1/2 hour with some water pump lubricant. While
running at a fast idle take a small piece of wood and move the pulley
forward and push it back against the seal. G.M.
