Any one seen or had this problem. This is a new brp short block
with 400 km on it. Machine over heated and traced it to water pump
not circ. coolant. Could turn motor over by hand and impeller would spin erratically.
Pulled pump out and plastic gear was fine but the drive gear on the crank
is not centered in the pump housing. I'm thinking brp screwed it up during
assemble. Any thoughts ?
