Think I need a new pump as I have a leak. Are Machter any good?
Doesn't matter, I just bought a GMB off eBay for a decent price.
they are just re branded Chinese ones I personally dont like the pressed on tin plate impellers..I pretty much always use gates stuff, much better build quality and Ive had one of those cheap tin plate ones fail within 400km
I've used GMB with no problems.
I recommend Repco water pumps
Repco gear is normally good but 2-3 times the price of the same rebadged item from eBay or a cheap car parts place.
GMB has gone Chinese now. Hope the quality hasn't suffered too much, got one in my car too so fingers crossed.
Yeah I thought they might have been made in China now. Hopefully they are made under licence and have kept the build quality.
I just received a new GMB pump. Sadly it looks like they have gone to a pressed stainless steel impeller. The cast closed impellers are more efficent and less prone to cavitation at high RPM.
Did you get the shaft wobble too?
you pay extra for that.
I went electric. I was sick of the crap, no matter the brand, or were you bought it.
It also has an over temp alarm, plus temperature & voltage read out.
There is more stuff it does.
Check it out @craig davies if anybody is interested.
