Water pump om way out

Hi Iam in shepperdon in victoria and think my water pump is on the way out does any one know a mechanic in the area or a parts supplier in the area.

Phil,

The closest place would be Volkwerke in Greensborough.  They are a very long established VW workshop and keep new and used spares.

that's one part that should be in the van's parts stash for any longish trips,
unless you know it's pretty fresh.
they last roughly 70,000 miles on a 2.1 waterboxer engine.
 
I have been adding a bit of machinist's cutting oil , a water soluble oil. o T3's and all kinds of cars for over 20 years. Makes an excellent rust inhibitor and water pump lube. I wouldn't dream of running only anti-frz and water.    Maybe a cup full in the whole van. Makes the coolant look milky. I think it helps extend water pump life, and it sure doesn't hurt anything ...we need all the corrosion protection we can get in these machines.
