MG Car Repair/MGB Waterpump - unable to remove

Hi Barrie,

Just another note of thanks - managed to get the pump off today via a combination of grinding & drilling and eventually the pump just pulled off over the broken bolt - which then came out very easily ironically. Inside the block (and the pump) was fully a rusty coloured sludge so I've flushed that out - now to order new pump etc. Thanks again, Gary
