oh. my. ***
my d5 koolance pump cover just popped off.
It's a very weak fitting. The end of the metal has the thread on the outside, and it's only a few mm deep. Reseated it, checked it thrice, started to fill again and as soon as I put the pump up to 5 pop it goes again.
This thing sucks. Who would put such a small and weak thread on a bloody water pump
I'm getting this baby instead. Now that's a thread.
Oooohhhhh Geeeeee. Look what they've done with the latest version of that pump cover:
No flippin' guesses as to why they moved the mounting plate to secure against the back of the mounting cover. They should recall the old stock, this sh#t is dangerous. I've mailed them explaining the problem and asked for one of those plates. Will be interesting to see what their service is like.
Update: Koolance not only offered to ship me their updated bracket, but they are updating the stock of my supplier as well. So I'm pretty impressed with their service and accountability.Edited by harlen - 3/5/12 at 6:43pm
