The only area of concern is the Bentley maual says to coat the water pump o-ring with lubricant but not what type. Any ideas anyone?
Some people say they spray it with WD40. Maybe you could use some ion grease or whatever that stuff is called that is white. Looks like crisco. I think that a thin coat of that would be good. I look forward to your results.
