Water Pump Help
So i just bought my first skoolie, got it from Austin, TX to Santa Cruz, CA and was about to go over the pass to make it home to San Fran when I started leaking lots of coolant and water on a little box below the engine. I'm guessing its the water pump thats busted, its leaking out of the crevice where the box connects to the engine.
Anyone know what kind of pump i need for a 1990 GMC 366 Carb Automatic Gasser with a Ward body? And what kind of pain in the ass is this to replace? Worth hiring some shifty mechanic to do it?
i'm guessing its like a 50$ pump and a mechanic will probably want $150 or so, i have a place to park the bus in santa cruz which is about a 10 minute drive, can i just keep it full of water and drive it back there without blowing my engine and have some of my more mechanically inclined friends to fix it?
Thanks a bunch
