Well, she went Friday afternoon on the ride home from work, the bearings went all to hell and she was growling like no tomorrow and throwing coolant everywhere, so I got a new pump from Checker for $38 and put it in this weekend. Very easy install, I enjoyed the work more than I thought I would. Only took me about 4 hours total time on the pump, but I put a new waterneck and thermostat in too. I got some of those green hoses and the waterneck off an LT-1 Caprice at the yunk yard. Everything went nice and smooth, and the new pump is so damn quiet! I'll post some pics of the new pump tomorrow.
