    Hello everyone, I've been gone for a while, I have a 1989 corvette, that had a water leak that turned out to be hard to locate, turns out that for all of us pre-optispark c4s(prone to weep hole leaks from the pump), my leak was from a failed bearing in my pump, which in turn gave me a series of worsening overheats, although I parked immediately, my car easily was exceeding 280-300 range. I towed my car home and parked it, time and money dried up due to an ugly divorce,( she tried to get my Vette.lol..fail) any way, the car has sat for almost 2yrs. and I finally get around to changing out for a new pump, everything went in with ease and took about an hour or so to put back together, I went to fire her up, and, and, and..crank no start,,damn! I will finish this story tomorrow,,,
