Water Pump Inlet Tube Leaking-Replacement Not Snug
Hey guys. I changed my water pump about a year ago, and used the old "water pump inlet tube", but it would always leak a little anti-freeze. I tried buying a replacement from O'Reilly Auto Parts, but it is also a little loose, and not very snug. I think I might of widened the hole by messing with it too much. Any ideas on how to make this a tight, non-leaking fit? I thought about using teflon tape, but didn't know if that would break off inside the cooling system. Maybe I can use some sort of sealant around the edges, once I have it in there? I know that it will get super hot, so it has to stay good under intense heat. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
