MV Agusta Water pump upgrade

Well I got hold of a brand new oe waterpump upgrade kit on ebay.

Today I fitted it.

I've put a couple of pictures in. You don't need to be a hydro-mechanical engineer to work out that it will shove water up pipe a bit faster than the original.

Other than a pair of circlip pliars and the click R pliars for the hose clips ( I really don't like those clips much ) it is just basic tools.

I tightened the impeller on to it's new shaft by hand with a soft jaw in the vice..and a bit of loctite threadlock.

In one of the pics you can see the weep hole which is positioned in between the inboard oil seal and the outboard water seal. This prevents cross contamination of the coolant with oil and the oil with water.

I imagine oil pressure to be higher than water pressure ?

Put simply.....

It works

Not perfectly but better than the standard mouse paddle... Fit a manual upper fan switch too & overheating's cured

Wow, such a bad design the old one.

Not sure with MV pressures, but water pressure would be constant when warm, relatively speaking. Oil pressure fluctuates with rpm, low when low revs, high when med-high revs.

With my old car, not sure about water pressure, but oil pressure was 25psi at idle and 80psi (max) 4000rpm up.

The new design has actually the same design paddle as our old washing machine back in the 70s....Don't know what has going on with the original ..It reminds me of leonardo daVinci 's original idea for a helicopter...great thinking but it would never have got off the ground..ha ha

Thumbs down bad?

go look up a Fiat 600D water pump impeller......the vanes are perpendicular to the shaft.......guess they were thinking about moving Gnocchi at low speed

Good one. Regarding the water pump, I made a deal for a 2010 F4 oil cooler and the 2010 water pump. I took a chance on the water pump, anyone know if the impeller and outer cover can be fitted to a 2007 F4? Are those the same parts as in the upgrade kit?

Thanks!

It is a small improvement but as I have discovered the only true solution is to get the hot air away from the engine, so I removed the fairings for the summer. 20-30 degrees cooler
