If that is the original water pump to the car depends on the date code i would be interested in buying your old water pump from you. Shot me a Pm with your info so I could contact you or help your with the build date o your car. Thanks Matt

Can you post some pictures of the current radiator/hose setup - that might help if we can see what exactly you have.

DriveTrain / Water pump replacement in '78 TA pontiac 400
« Last post by CRU on Today at 11:28:33 AM »
Looking for any advice/tips on replacing a water pump on a '78 TA with a pontiac 400. 

I'm assuming my water pump went out since I hear a loud thumping noise under load and coolant was leaking bad from the weep hole of the water pump - guessing the bearing are bad?  Also, I'm told you should replace the fan clutch when replacing the water pump?  Got the fan/clutch off along with the alternator.  Should I remove the crank pulley - will that give me more room to put the new pump on?  Also, should I use silicon at all on the new gaskets?  What torque spec should I use on the pump bolts (15 lbs?) and what pattern should I tighten them in?  Anything else I should be concerned about?

Epoxy Fill primer. House of Kolor has awesome color to their primers, which can be used as sealers too.
