I have a leak I can see it driping down at the bottom of the water pump in the centre, question is do I have welch plugs behind the pump or do I just replace the pump ?

Should be the water pump

There are welsh plugs on the sides and back of the motor as the hole for the water pump is enough to blast the sand from the water jacket sand cast out when they originally poured the mould for the block.
So, yes it should be the water pump.:thumbsup:

About $45 for a newie.Sum of the ser 1 have the mounting adaptor block on the rear of the water pump so u may need 2 gaskets.No welsh plugs in behind there, most likely a corroded timing case aswell...
