Front general, all parts used (except needed two small hose clamps for connector line) are contained in the kit #180200 as per the service bulletin MC96-001 for $10.00 in stock at Midwest MasterCraft Crystal, Mn (763) 533-9666. Local hardware store had parts on hand but 3 times the cost.

I finished rebuilding my water pump today. The bearings and seals are available on eBay. While I had the water pump out, I drilled and tapped a 3/8 npt port for my heater outlet. This will give me hotter water for the heater and still allow the water temp sensor to be inside the water pump. On gibbons fix, I didn't like that the sensor was moved back out of the flow of the water through the pump.

I took this next pick to answer the FAQ: Which way does the upper thermostat go on my LT-1?

And here it is buttoned up and ready to go back in the boat.

Wow, that looks great. What made you decide to rebuild?

My bearings were shot, so it was rebuild or replace. An LT-1 water pump from inboardonline was $415, so I started looking to rebuild. I found the rebuild kit for $60 and ordered it. I later saw that the same guy was selling rebuilt pumps for not much more, but I'm glad I got the experience of doing it myself. I experimented a little with the paint job and cleaned up the impeller.

A rebuilt unit from Oreilly for a '96 Corvette is $140.00, so I guess I saved a little money over that option.
