When rebuilding your engine or replacing the timing chain, it is always a good idea to include a new water pump. We have the highest quality Toyota water pumps in stock all of which are new OEM quality Japanese-manufactured (Nissan or Aisin) pumps, not cheap Chinese rebuilds. Water pump gasket will be included with the pump. Don't be left stranded or damage your new or rebuilt engine because of a simple water pump. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call and we would be glad to help.
Note:The most common water pump failure is due to over tightened V- belts. An incorrectly adjusted fan belt may shorten the life of the belt or the water pump. After you install your belt you should have 5/8 in. to 3/4 in. of slack when pushing the belt with your thumb. The belt can be twisted about a quarter turn when the tension is correct. As per a Toyota Factory Service Manual, the drive belt should be 125 +/- 25 lbs. measured with a Nippondenso BTG-20 (95506-00020) or a Borroughs BT-33-73F.
