About Water Pump Mounting Gasket
The machined surfaces of the water pump and cylinder block have many microscopic irregularities. Inserting a gasket between the water pump and cylinder block fills the irregularities between the metal surfaces. It prevents leakage of coolant from the water pump.
What is the Purpose of Water Pump Mounting Gasket?
The mating surface of water pump and engine does not produce a water tight seal because metal surfaces have many irregularities, so a gasket is inserted between water pump and engine to produce a water tight seal.
How Water Pump Mounting Gasket Works?
When the water pump is mounted against the engine, the gasket compresses and fills the gap between the surfaces of water pump and engine to create a seal.
Where is Water Pump Mounting Gasket Located?
The gasket seats between the two mating surfaces of the components. The water pump gasket is sandwiched between the water pump and the cylinder block.
