Hello snap0964,

Thanks for letting me know, a bit late for me though. I purchased a replacement water pump from SuperCheap (Super expensive) last year but never got around to replacing the leaky one until now.

Mine is called Protex

Make sure you get the O ring for the heater pipe from Ford. I have used the ones supplied and have always had issues. Use the Genuine Ford on and no problems. They are the same O ring for EF to BF.

Yeah, I bought 4 - 3 cars to do and a spare.
The O ring they supply is a decent thick sized one, seals fine with a bit of RTV blue.

Righto

RTV Silicon Blue and an "O" Ring from Ford. Local dealer wont have the "O" ring in stock, I'll have to go to their service spares department.

New pump came with an "O" ring.

Cheers
