Apologies all around if this is a topic that has been beaten to death -- search turned up nothing.
1995 Ranger, 2.3l engine.
The water pump inlet tube has a pinhole in it. My local Ford dealer lists the part, and I have it on order, but they've been messing me around for four days now. I've searched around on the web, and it's starting to look like this tube is a rare bird.
Is it avaialble as a new part anywhere? I'm going to take it to a radiator repair shop tomorrow, but this thing is so corroded that I doubt it's repairable.
Thanks in advance for any useful ideas. Or, failing that, any new swear words I may have missed...
