That it is and my research showed the water pump is not a brand specific requirement for it to not leak or fail. So did not get the cheapest but got one that was not $100.

Getting the bottom end of the block built up.








Ran into a few problems thought.

First was the oil pump pick up. It cracked when putting it back on even though I was TQ to spec. it hit the 84in-lbs and then when I did a second click the plastic broke. So now I need to figure that out. Might just go to the junk yard. dealership wants $57 for the plastic and $64 for the metal. Junk yard likely will be $5-$10 for a pick up.

The second problem I have ran into and knew it might need to be fixed is the water pump to housing bolt. one bolt was very easy to come out. (likely was damaged when a dealership replaced the water pump when the screws backed out of the water pump pulley...). So I will need to pick up a helicoil kit on Monday and drill and tap out one of the bolt holes.

I will drop the head and all my bits off to the machine shop on Monday so they can start on that.
