You can change the innards of the water pump on the removable version, you know.

It's somewhat easier than handling the whole front cover of the timing case.

You can just buy a replacement direct from Burton?

There's something strange about that link to the Burton website, many/most times it take you to a page with an empty module at £76.50 at other tries it takes you to a page with the innards fitted at £137,50

Apologies. My bad! Thanks for pointing that out Bill, this is the link I should have posted. As you say, it would be cheaper to just purchase the innards!
