It’s not the water pump leaking, it’s the timing cover. Which means either the repair will be slightly cheaper or 4x more expensive, and the tech has the coolant bypass hose off of the car which looks like probably more good news since I just replaced that. And my fucking tax return still isn’t here. Everyone I know got theirs within a week but of course I won’t. And my friend is out of town so I can’t get the Miata running for several weeks at least, and it looks like it’ll be a while before the Mustang is running. Fucking awesome.
