Another way......remove the belt from the SC, Alt, and water pump. Start the car and run off the battery. May need to force the SC into bypass manually by switching vacuum lines.

That can isolate the water pump (don't run very long this way).

Is this feasible? Doc, Don, acg_ssei, Fuddy, anyone? Thoughts? Even possible?

haha now you're getting too creative for your own good! I dunno how much air can make it past the supercharger, that valve isn't very big. May be enough to idle though. hahaha I dunno what to even think bout it. I guess if the supercharger will let enough air past its possible to use it to rule out the waterpump. Really I'd just pull the spark plug and if it makes more noise you know its not your water pump and all it takes is pulling a plug wire, ya know?

I'm going to go pull plugs first then try the belt and bypass idea. Those are things that don't involve fluids and won't get me into hot water where I live.

OK, after much tought, probablly too much thought, I've decided to go in 50/50 with a friend so I can cut down cost and solve issues of where to work on the car. We will more than likely sell the car or he will by me out once the car is up and running. With out having to pay labor and paying 50% for parts We will both benifit in the long run,but if nothing else one of us will have a nice ride. I'm not going to touch the car until my friend buys in, that way it'* kind of like x-mas for both of us. We've shaken the box but still don't know what we have and won't until he'* ready. I will keep all progress posted and still plan on being an active member here. Thanks again to all for your imput on this. It was instrumental in the decision making process.

My goof on the bypass.....you don't have to mess with the alt. That belt only runs the WP, SC, and AC.

I noticed that already but we are still going to hold off until my partner, Joe, is ready. We should be under the hood come Friday or next week. I'm also still waiting on the title so I should let it rest until then. Besides, I have to install a gauge pod with a/f meter and new boost gauge on my other car today. As most know they are indespensable tools with a turbo. I was talking to the gent I got them from and he works with ast pullies? I'm not sure of the brands for this cars applications but he said he could give me a break on prices. I'll keep you all posted.

Cpl After I injured myself and they realized I couldn't reenlist let alone finish my current contract I became un-promotable. I got to spend over a year in the hospital and made the cutting score but was denide the rank, because they knew I was going to be medically retired. That was a kick in the rear for me being I busted tail to be where I was to begin with.

Sorry to hear that. I am on a medical leave of absence from my flying duties now. Got another year and a half to go before I can get my medical certificate back. Semper Fi.

I certainlly didn't think my career would end like that. I'd have liked tho become an officer eventually but it just wasn't in the cards for me. I hope things work out for you. I know what you must be going thru not being able to get that "fix". I know I miss the feeling.
