Default Smack down fail!

Well driving home from the movies with the wife and pass a lifted Lmm all blinged out...Him and his buddy with a old body style ford with 351were cruising to the local mud runs by the house.
Well I'm coming up to a light that I know is going to turn red so I'm prepared for a lil fun
I noticed his buddy in the ford flash him with his light bar and in my head that means smoke this guy lol
Well light turns red and I'm sitting there talking with my wife about the movie and he pulls up next to me bumpers in line!
Light goes green and I accelerate normally and so does he and a split second later I hear him stop it and when he down shifted I was hitting third and rolled into it avoiding the down shift and walked right away
When I looked back I got the light flash as to say good job brother
PS. Well turns out I won the battle but he won the war
I pulled into the driveway and got out to realize my water pump ate itself and was pouring out the weep hole

Shit happens. WP was going to fail eventually if one WOT run did it in.

Two wrongs dont make a right, but three rights do make a left.

Reality is a matter of perspective.

Well this is the second time now
First time was a napa replacement and I didn't weld it because I didn't know the procedure.
Lifetime warranty so I'll get it for free and now I know to weld both gears on the pump while soaking almost completely in water
I'll post up a little DIY after I get back from vacation
Anyone have any other tips for welding it?
Obviously use a tig machine and keep it cool to not melt seals.

I wrapped a wet rag around it only leaving the area where I was gonna tack weld it . It has held up fine for me and I did mine with a Mig .

Don’t feel bad, I smoked a 6 banger mustang in my explorer a few years ago and as soon as I got in front of him the main heater core plug blew off the intake covering his car and leaving me sit, lmao, it has fuel line and a 7/8” bolt double clamped now.
