[Healeys] Coolent leak-------new twist-----another observation

I usually have a couple of rebuilt BJ8 pumps hanging around that I would be
happy to sell on an exchange basis however, I MUST have an undamaged core
back. Once the pulley or impellor are damaged the pump is useless.
I stopped promoting them when the cheap repros came on the market as people
seem to prefer a "new" part to a rebuilt because the cost of shipping the
core back made the rebuilt cost a few $ more.
I have no experience with rebuilding the repro BJ8 pumps but IMHO the BN1/2
repros are a piece of junk and are virtually impossible to rebuild.
If the BJ8  ones are of the same quality I would personally have a rebuilt
original any day.
If anyone is interested please contact me off line.
