Frustration with water pump change.

Hi all.
thought i would tackle the noisy pump today.
Ordered a cam belt kit a few months ago that included beating and the water pump.
All things went pretty well with removal, but foolishly i fitted the water pump only to find the belt supplied has a different pitch.
... Tried the original belt that is is good condition but it did not time up.
Yep the pump is also the wrong pitch.
So i will have to buy another pump, now the only part number i can find on the original is B714 7C, but a quick google gets me nowt?.
Can anyone help with a supplier please.
2001 MP1 Sporting
Thanks.

Re: Frustration with water pump change.

There are 2 types. They have probably just supplied you the wrong one.

Re: Frustration with water pump change.

Well i have an issue.
Overheating...
Bled both taps, pumped all the pipes, heater is nice and hot, fan comes on.
But if i leave it ticking over long enough it will bubble up in the expansion tank.
No mayo anywhere
I thought at 1st i might have over filled it with coolant as i topped up to the max.
Ideas guys?

Is the cap sealing properly?

Re: Frustration with water pump change.

Sounds like a head gasket failure between the water jacket and combustion chamber.

Re: Frustration with water pump change.

That was my fear.
But it ticks over well, no drops in revs and loss of power when driving?

Could be.
But when my 899 Cinq had the head gasket fail like that it was sucking coolant into the combustion chamber whenever I closed the throttle.

I managed to drive home, but quickly without ever coming completely off of the throttle...... Which must have sounded odd whenever I had to stop...!!
If I closed the throttle it sucked the cylinder full and locked.

But if he isn't loosing any coolant, it maybe isn't that.
I never had it boil over during that issue either, but that could have just been luck and being a Cinq I had a temperature gauge, not just a panic light!!

Re: Frustration with water pump change.

My old cinq had a seized/faulty thermostat once. Stuck shut so it drove about 2 miles then overheated! Worth taking the thermostat out of the housing just to check if it still overheats?

Then theres the rad? Perhaps its clogged up and inneficient, alhough it expect it to be very hot day for that to become a problem. The radiators are so cheap in my opinion it's worth replacing it anyway if its old.

And the cap, unlikely but possible it can handle the pressure!?

Also if your keeping the car - I'd fit a temp gauge too you can get nice black subtle ones that fit nicely under the radio.
