        Sorry I wasn't paying attention to your question. The very first
repair I made on my '76B was after a long drive and as we reached our
residential area I heard this horrid noise and after stopping, a
puddle formed under the car in the
driveway. Larry Macy drove about 90 miles from his home on a cold and
rainy Sunday morn in his Midget with his 6' scarf blowing in the wind to
diagnose in about 5 minutes the blown water pump. 

Hope it is as simple for you,
