Re: Overheating Issues...

OK, it worked fine before the pump and did not work after the pump. Remove the belt, spin and turn everything that turns in the belt path then with the key and no belt see how it turns over. I've seen old removed pumps seize after sitting on the shelf for a few months.

Re: Overheating Issues...

Stuck t-stat?
If I remember correctly, you like the closed systems. Maybe air in the system.
Blown head gasket?

Just a couple of ideas.

good point. i was thinking of returning it to its last known working order. ie put the old pump back in and see. just to start to systematicaly eliminate possibilities.

Re: Overheating Issues...

99SPORT - go ahead. I've been quoted before, and I find it flattering...

RichP - I checked the pump (and everything else!) while I had the belt off, and everything spun freely. I also re-checked the pump once it was in place, while I was putting the pully on.

flht1997 - all screws went into the exact holes they came out of, where possible. There's only one long screw to mount the water pump - and it's fairly obvious where that goes.

stewie - I'd put the old pump back in, but it doesn't hold water. And I'm running low on R/O water.

I'll probably take the belt off and see what that does, maybe I missed something? However, I'm taking to-day off from that little nuisance, and getting to restoring my office to its former usefulness. We re-arranged house last week-end, and I'm still putting things back to rights!

Re: Overheating Issues...

Know that feeling Jon about being to close, when we were looking for shorts in the 91' I know I killed off what few remaining brain cells I had left.
The only thing I could could think of was there more heat than thought and maybe it did start to seize, sure hope not.
It would be nice if it were something simple like like a poor ground, but I just can't see that happening on one of your vehicles.
Wish I could be of help.

My thought as well. My second thought was of a really good motorcycle mechanic that resurrected my bike years ago. One thing he did was install a new ground strap. After two weeks of 90*, + 90% humidity the starter wouldn't work. Everything else was fine: Lights, charging system, battery. I could push start it and go anywhere I wanted. I took it back to him, he busted his noodle for a few days with no result. Out of sheer desperation he pulled the ground strap, which looked fine, and sanded the frame and termination; problem solved.

I dunno, if your cooling system leaks, your engine is overheating, and your hood is shut, I would think that it's hot and damp in there. JMHO

Re: Overheating Issues...

The best word I could give is START OVER. Check your Ohm/volt meter. Clean everything again. Do a load tests on the battery. Then right down the line again. Suspect that "known good starter". Suspect everything. Twist and tape everything as you go.

Re: Overheating Issues...

Why not pull the sprak plugs and crank it after checking the cylinders with a flash light first? Also might try cranking it with out the belt on just once.

To be honest, I haven't been able to work on it. Seems like everything else around here has decided "go boom!" all at once. I've had my kitchen torn apart twice since this has gotten silly...

"It never rains, but it pours." Once I get caught up and can start working on this again, I'll take notes. Once I finally figure it out, I'll let you all know. Meanwhile, I'll finish fighting off this URI I've managed to pick up (it never rains!) and I'll get going on this again...
