Default Electric water pump

I'm about to order the electric water pump to try and help my running hot problem.
My car gets hotter than it should and feels like it'* pulling a but load of timing.
So i'll just keep it cold w/ the pump.
Also some time yesterday i'm gonna get my lazy as up for work early so i can make it to my friends shop on time. I'm gonna have him get readings of all my sensors so i can team that up w/ other information to get a chip made.
Any series one guys want me to take measurments of the pump???? I know someone was checking this out before.
O yeah, did anyone else notice that without a water pump on a series 2 you can get rid of your ac completely????

I would love for you to make measurements or a tracing of the pump for me.

And I love my AC way too much to get rid of it.

Alright, i'll trace the gasket, put it in paint or autocad and lable measurements on it.
I'll take measurements of the pulley location al well.

Are you certain that your cooling lines aren't partially clogged?

I'm pretty sure. I know i had all my lines replaced last year and i think i had my radiator cleaned out. I'm gonna be draining all the coolant when i do this anyway.

What about the cooling ports within the engine? Get a good flow there, too? I guess some kind of flow meter is the only way to really tell there, eh?

its possible you dropped some crud in there by accident when you were working on your car. A flush wouldnt hurt.
