dad supervised when i installed it and warned me of all that and made sure i didnt do anything like that its cracked near the pully

im also not very strong so its pretty hard for me to install something so tightly it cracks

yes m8 it was full checked and all old gasket was removed it wasn't a installation error dad supervised and warned me of all hazards and guided me through it and dad has done tones of E series water pumps and this is his first fail one i know there is a chance it was just a factory fault but i would rather put a high quality one on there this time round

i dont like potential fail items on my car and i really dont like doing it a second time round after just doing it and i sure as hell dont wanna do it a third time im just asking for what brand you guys recommend ?

GMB water pumps....I have used a Silverline brand one before and never had an issue with it.
Just make sure you use good quality coolant/inhibitor, and mixed to the correct ratio.
