    Also I just realized there were no washers above and below the impeller the manual shows them and they are in the rebuild kit? I think the previous owner thought the motor was a lot older than it is so maybe it has the wrong impeller as well.

      bump.. does anyone know what the black tar like stuff is that was used on my pump gasket? Should I use the same stuff (if I can find it) or can anyone recommend a good gasket sealer for the water pump gasket - something I can find at West Marine maybe?

        Any automotive gasket sealer will work but dont use the stuff that glues the gasket on like epoxy. It would be very hard to remove next time.

          Do you have any idea what the sticky black tar like stuff is that was used by the previous mechanic?

            You don't have to use gasket sealer, as the pressure of the bolts is enough to keep pressure inside the water pump chamber. The direction of the water pump does look a little akward compare to this guy's pump http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsCCPUUXbGE, maybe the last person installed it the way?
