Re: Replace Water Pump 1967 327 2bbl RS w/AC
Please be careful. I know it may be hard to believe, but if a bolt is fatigued it can break. I had one of my water pump bolts break and I didn't even get to snug it. I guess from being removed and installed multiple times it wore it out. I was luck that enough of the bolt was sticking out of the block that I could remove the pump and get a monkey wrench on it. Not a normal thing to have a bolt like that break, but it does happen.
