Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

You'll have good results using the kit 93280001. Ensure that you follow the torque pattern and specifications included with the ACD water pump. The cap screws used to fasten the water pump to the motor are Torque-To-Yield (TTY) so discard the old units (this is critical). Do not use any thread locker on the fasteners, and if you don't have a lb/in torque wrench, you're going to need one.

The WIS specification for the water pump cap screws is not correct and there is no reference in the WIS to these fasteners being TTY. I learned this the hard way, having replaced what looked like leaking paper gaskets twice in six months on an aftermarket water pump. After much more investigation, I purchased all ACD parts and found the reference to TTY; using new fasteners and the correct TTY method corrected the issue.

The kit is the result of a discussion I had with the folks at esaabparts in an attempt to help others avoid the same problem. For best results, I recommend using the metal gasket that is separate from the pump and 1/4 drive tools.
