Default Water pump pulley, stock '93 SSE


I got out to go to work yesterday and decided to drive the Bonneville. Startedright up and then I heard a moment of squeal followed by rattling metal. Shut it right down and opened the hood. The serpentine belt was off, and a bit of flashlight tag showed me a pulley on the wall near the strut tower. Hmmmmm. More flashlight tag. There'* no pulley on the water pump! Son of a BITCH!

Being as it was about 0330 and 20 some degrees out, I decided to wait it out. I took another car to work and checked it out today after church. Water pump turns freely, maybe TOO freely. It might be that the impeller is also unattached. Maybe, just maybe, the impeller came off and jammed the shaft so the pulley wouldn't turn, shered off the pulley, releasing tension on the impeller/shaft, and ....

Do I HAVE to replace the water pump, or can I superglue the pulley back on?:)

Thanks in advance.

The pulley should normally have 4 screws that hold it on.
