I think the bolt in water pump is a simpler answer.

My electric water pump has been working well for nearly ten years. I got rid of the electronic controller, and so the pump runs all the time. I was always worried about overheating in city traffic, but that has not been a problem at all with this Davies Craig unit. I did re-position the pump to improve water flow to the heater matrix, and I am now toasty warm in winter.
