Not really off-topic, but...
A friend of mine had an old GMC cowboy cadillac (truck). The water pump
died one day, and he found that he could get the parts to replace in it. It
had an impeller -- and that's as detailed as I'm going to get... don't want
to confuse anybody, you know... Ahem! [read: don't know much on the subject.]
So, for the question...
Can WE rebuild these water pumps? And who would carry the parts?
