Re: anyone else had issue getting waterpump to seal?

I just crank the hell out of the regular worm gear style ones, never had an issue.

Did you make sure the hose clamp is entirely on the neck of the waterpump not sitting a little crosswise on the barbed section? I could see that leaving a low clamping pressure area in two places if it was on a little angled. It's not in a very fun spot to work, naturally.
