Adjusting my Pentax hydromatic H1 water pump

My outflow main at the pump burst and was replaced. Since then the Pump keeps running but not cutting off even though no one is using water. At times, even though the pump is on we are not getting the expected water pressure. I am concerned that by leaving the pump running this way I may cause damage to the pump's motor.

SOURCE: Fuel Reg........

Fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI in 24 hours, the symptom you have is more than one issue, first verify the system holds fuel pressure over night, the pressure regulator will not cause this issue, the check valve built into the fuel pump will. On to the dieing concern, clean the idle speed control air bypass valve and the throttle valve with throttle body cleaner spray with the engine running at high idle, spray in at least 1/2 can of the cleaner, next disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then drive for 2 days under varying conditions to "relearn the idle strategy".

If the fuse and fuel pump relay check out then yes, your friend may be right. Inspect the connections to the pump and check related wiring for damage.

SOURCE: water pump removal (cant get power steering pump out)

To access and remove the waterpump, the powersteer bracket has to be removed completely. To do this, the rear camshaft drive pulley must be removed (need a tool to hold pulley, bolt tight) and then the thin sheetmetal shield behind the pulley. This allows access to the lower powersteer bracket bolts.
Removal of the engine mount is also required to perform timing belt replacement. It also helps to increase your access room too.
I would recommend you replace the waterpump why you are there as they have a tendancy to fail at around 140000 km's.

Why would it burst a pipe after getting new water pump fitted?

water pipes burst from 2 reasons
one is that they are too old and have cracked the binding inside the rubber
two is excessive pressure from a head gasket/cracked head problem
if the hoses are larger than the clamp, they will burst
if they have been removed incorrectly the fabric in the rubber gets torn and they will burst
if the pump was fitted incorrectly , then high pressure from overheating will make them burst

I keep bursting rack & pinion boots, does that mean my power steering pump is bad

no, if you have power steering fluid leaking into the boot it means your power steering piston/rod/cylinder has leaking seals.
replace the cylinder (what you attached the boots to) or rebuild the packing.

Water pump have anything to do with the fuel pump. Car will start run for a few sec then die. If you give it the gas it will stay running let off it dies. It a 98 regal supper charge

No. They are separate. If the idle is too slow try adjusting the idle screw if it is available on that older vehicle. Many things can cause a rough start / idle and an experienced mech will need to look at it. Good Luck.

Location of fuel water seperator on a 2002 h1 hummer / vehical dies out./ cranks but will not run long, idles in park no problem till you drive it around time varies when it cuts out. milage 33,000 thanks...

The fuel/water seperator is located under the hood, driver's side, against the firewall. Black cap and 2 wires going to the bottom. The pump uses an optical sensor so yes, if there was fuel, it would really screw with the system. However, the PMD on these were problematic. This is the control module that is mounted to the side of the injector pump. They have a kit you can purchase to get it away from high heat and will comew with the harness and all to extend it. Would you like a 2003 shop manual for this?

My water pump burst on the road. the engine still starts but there is a spinning noise. Will I also have to replace the timing belt also?

Replace that water pump right away. I don't see why you'd need to replace the timing belt, unless you're saying "burst" as in, "It blew the gasket to horror and back". Just to be certain, pull out your dipstick. If it looks milky, drain your oil, and replace it. If not, get your new water pump, the spinning, IMHO, is most likely the bearing in the water pump just died.

Loseing water from the area of water pump? It's flowing out as soon as you fill it up.Is this the water pump?I still have water in my over flow tank.

the seal in the pump is out. you need to replace it. the reason there is still water in you resivour is because the water is sucked down through preassure. since you have no pressure because of the water running out of you pump it will not run out of your resivour. also you might check you water hose on the bottom of the water pump. it have burst or came disconnected.
