Awhile back I installed a new water pump, and had a heck of a time.
There is an o-ring on the top which needs to be compressed to get all the bolts in. I would put in one bolt, then get a crowbar under the pump and pull up on it while trying to locate the bolt holes. I wore out my arm, and was exhausted by the time I got it hooked up. And I was worried about cracking something with all the force from the crowbar, and I was getting gasket sealer smeared around and had to clean things a few times. Is there any secret to doing this. My manuals basically say, stick it on and bolt it up. I was almost to point of taking off the head, put on the pump and bolt on the head. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blush.gif)

take it you had the correct o ring as it has a rim on it,you put your gasket on the pump,then bolt it up, there is two o rings, one is a plain flat o ring that goes on your heater pipe at the rear of your pump,and the other is at the top of the pump that o ring has a rim on it,sounds to me like you have placed a o ring on the wrong place, you o ring for the heater,is on the top of your pump, when it should be on the rear of the pump.
