my ebII has been eating waterpumps for breakfast lunch AND dinner...

This is my 4th one thats gone.. 3 recond ones and my ea spare one.

is there a diff between ea and eb waterpumps?

any ideas on y they keep dying?

belt too tight?, clutch fan rooted? thermostat dead? etc?

try a brand new one next time and see what happens.
aftermarket you can pickup for around $50.
