Most of you have seen the photos of the water pump from the motor I bought for the 86 GTS (3SGE motor). Well I got the new motor yesterday to replace that one. First thing I did was remove the water pump to see what it look like and this is what I found. I took my old water pump out of the engine I am replacing, to see what it looked like, and it was clean, no rust or crap in there. This one looks better then the last one, but I just don't know if I should chance it. The place I bought it from, told me that the tested the motor and had no problems. They told me that the motor has been setting for a while, so I should expect that. Am I being too picky? It is a used engine after all. Will I be OK installing it and then doing a flush?

Thanks for your time.

damn that does not look to good. you should strip the motor down to inspect it more before installing it.

agreed, you have problems.

Unless...they used ketchup instead of engine coolant.
