broke bolts for waterpump

I sure some of y'all have ran up on this but 2 of my bolts broke off back in the timing chain cover. And Im running out of options. I went ahead and put it back on and sealed it up real good. Just hope it don't leak.

If it leaks you may have to take the cover off to get the bolts out.

Re: broke bolts for waterpump

If there is enough bolt sticking out you can weld a nut to the bolt.
The heat from welding will usually help break the bolt loose for easier removal.
Finding WP bolts for the 94-95 is difficult. Search the forums for a thread about WP bolts for the SN95 Mustangs for ideas.
When reinstalling new bolts, be sure to coat the threads with some anti-seize to prevent breakage in the future.

Well the water pump Is holding pressure so. I'm glad for thst. But I put a new afpr on it today cuz my pressure was lower than specs. But it's shooting gas out of the vacuum port. So I guessing I bought a bad one. But if my fuel preuusure is about 8 psi below spec do y'all think it would not have all the power that it should have ?

Gas out of the vacuum port means the diaphragm has a hole in it.
Low fuel pressure has a direct effect on how much fuel gets squirted into the engine, so yes, it will also effect how much power the engine is making. Less fuel, less power.
