Scout Car water pump packing

Post by RCASSIN » Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:02 am

Hi all, My water pump was leaking so i took it off with the intention of sending it off to a professional to rebuild it. Upon inspection,however, it only looks like the packing has to be replaced. The impeller is turning fine and appears to be in fine shape. Can I get an opinion on what you guys would do? Also, Can anyone recommend a supplier who has new packing material that is better than the 70 year old packing?. I understand that the silicone pace backing is far superior than the old stuff. Thanks, Rob.

The last sentence i screwed up. Should say: I understand that the silicone packing is far superior than the old stuff. Thanks, Rob.
