I don’t know how many miles are on your water pump

Thanks for the “heads up” on the pump seal. My water
pump was re-built five or six years ago. The car may
have 25,000 mi. on it since then. I will find the
repair ticket and see what happened back then. I
don’t mind taking the time for some prevention.

While I have all the pieces out I’m de-rusting and
re-painting the fan shrouds and replacing the rubber
bits all around. I retrieved my radiator yesterday
after a re-core and I opted for more fins per inch and
more tubes. The core is a little thicker by about
3/8" to 1/2". The new core doesn’t fit the top and
bottom radiator frame perfectly but it’s all strapped
together and the radiator fits in the car as before;
doesn’t hit the AC condenser and seems to have plenty
of room on the backside for the fan.
