Question about Chevrolet 1500
Yep that a one that will let the job down - the seal can go - what age and has the mix been kept with glycol and inhibitor as water will erode material.
Hard to see where water is comeing from as it leaks from around the shaft behind the pully.
Quite an easy fix which is no real emergency so long as you keep topping up radiator.
Check out replacement or recon existing, the price of some water pumps new replacement makes time and parts spent on repair far too expensive.
On the larger older diesels i have experiece of - the water pump would go whilst working in the day then cause bearing failure which would allow the fan blade to carve up the radiator.
Cost then would escalate, radiator, fan blades, water pump and if you were really unlucky some of the surrounding bits. All good fun
Good luck Owen
