And, just to throw an idea out there for re-installing the pump: mine is currently installed with stainless steel bolts and anti-seize (no RTV on the bolts). Been that way since Feb. 2016 when I "finished" the car. No leaks, no puddles... and if I want to remove the water pump, no bolts rusted in the block. It's a beautiful thing.
