RedRam10, Thanks!

Aviatorcoastie, that's good to know. The water pump I bought was a new (not refurb) from NAPA, P/N TFW 43263. It's standard thread. I hope the bearing don't go out anytime soon, but if they do I'll be sure to update this thread.

I've been thinking about the plastic impeller...I wonder if plastic is used in order to limit the damage to the surrounding parts, which I think are aluminum....but I've done no research on this. Maybe the steel ones act as a sort of harmonic balancer which extends the bearings life. Either way, it's a somewhat simple part that should not go out very frequently IMHO.
