A Bad Thing

Post by gr8jeep » Fri Sep 28, 2012 7:53 pm

Here is exactly what you don't want to have happen when your changing your water pump and removing the old seal on the oil pump housing , ouch , this screw up cost me 17 bucks for a used housing along with shipping . Believe it or not all i was using was a small pick like a lock smith would use , in my defense i do believe the previous owner was into this and used some sort of gasket sealer on this , it came out in a million pieces not even big chunks . My original reason for going after the water pump was oil weeping out of the weep hole i'm guessing it was the seal .
