I have had no problem with the factory installed water pump as of yet. I am thinking of changing it before spring. Which pump are most of you using?

Russel,
Jabsco #JA 50830-0012 is the new style water pump. I bought it from the factory and got it with a nice stainless motor cover. Factory's price was $214...

I put in the new pump a year ago and just noticed the seal leaking. I called the jabsco dealer for Canada and was told there have been some seals problems in Australia because of an antifreeze supplier using a differant additives. Volvo was mentioned as one of the vehicles using the product. I told him I was using the green antifreeze . Forgot to ask whether the antifreeze they are having problems with was the pink stuff. He is sending me a new seal. One with a harder rubber is in the works and available in the next few months. Harder rubber was his words , not mine .

As my bike was only a year old and 4500 miles when I got it, the factory installed seal was toast on the factory installed pump and the pump made knocking sounds. I just installed the new pump as specified by OLAF and so far everything is peachy. Guess I'll wait a year and see! It's always good advice to have a good rubber!

I have 55,000 Km (33,000 miles) now on my 04 SB, over this and last summer. I'm still running the original water pump and alternator with no trouble at all.

Am I on borrowed time here? :shock:
