Hepu makes the best pump
Make sure you don't accidentally buy one for a B230
I know hepu pumps are usually recommended but every one I've personally used has failed prematurely. The worst failure was one that had about 15k miles on it and went from completely fine to dumping all the coolant on the ground in 1 trip.Hepu pumps are the best. The Gates pump is probably the best of the budget brands.
GMB has been our preferred brand of water pumps for over 30 years for all the rear wheel drive Volvos we've ever worked on and that includes all of the performance engines we've built'. The only exception is for the B16 engines and that's only because GMB never made 1 for the B16, probably because they're cast iron.I have never had a problem with a GMB pump.
Neither have I. To be fair, I've not yet had a problem with any replacement water pump, but that just means my experience level as a family fleet maintainer is low. Where I've criticized parts longevity is, like others have, with the top seal between the pump and head. Here's an unboxing of sorts meant to show the features of the GMB and HEPU side by side: WasserpumpenmannI have never had a problem with a GMB pump.
