Progress on water pump

Had a go at machining the mating surface of the water pump impeller. Actually the plan was to go over to a friend to ask him if it could be done on his lathe and when he would have time to do it. Five minutes later it was ready;

Will polish the surface with some very fine (1600) emery paper before putting it all together with a recondition kit.

Also found out during the water pumps renovation that a ball joint separator tool is perfect for removing impeller remains from the pump shaft!
