After reading almost all of these forums on "water pump replacement" i have found no answer for my question. Im looking for the location of where the "rubber o-ring" goes on the water pump on my 90 N/A mx6. after removing the pump, there was no o-ring to be seen. Any help or pics would be really appreciated as i need to get this thing back on the road in less than a day. THanks!
Ive had a few replacement water pumps that came with an o-ring. They have a machined recess where the o-ring seats so it seals to the block. I think nowadays they are mostly an odd and somewhat rare item.
If yours does not have an o-ring, then it uses a metal compression gasket (some replacements will include a fiber gasket) to seal things up.
