DISCLAIMER

That was a 93SSE and a 17 year old wrench. I wasn't with him that day. It was solo.

oh ****... It wasnt the water pump...
I put the new pump on... filled it... but its coming out behind, or trickling from the top... the waterpump (more towards the back of the engine) its just pouring. someone said somthing about a hose? could it be I lost a plug? or my block heater?

"short bypass hose from the top of the water pump to the intake"
COuld I have a pic of this? I didnt take off or put on any hose
