New waterpump new noise
Hi just wandering if anyone can help me out with a problem
I installed new waterpump on my 94 LT1 yesterday, It sounds like something is rubbing inside of the thing. It squeaked on start up, I thought it was just the belt as it was soaked. The squeak is now intermittent, but the pump constantly has a groany sound to it.
I don't know what I could have possibly screwed up here. The pump is made in china ( asc or acs) is on the box. I put the coupler on the waterpump first, pushed it onto the seal with some grease, made sure splines went together and bolted it on, it was a little snug on dowls.
Opened bleeder filled up until coolant seaped out fired it up cracked bleeder again. engine is running at correct temp etc.
Figured someone else may have run across this.
