Default water pump replacement

Hi guys well I have decided to change my water pump and radiator as they were started to leak. The water pump is off and I'm trying to buy one from eBay but my question is my original water pump has an r on the propeller . But the ones on eBay don't but the shape of the propeller are the same. My question is were I can buy one with the r stamp on it or is the one on eBay ok. Thanks in advance.

The R is not always printed into the fin area, don't worry too much about it. It has to do with rotation direction, which is different in the different setups.
Just verify if the fin "direction" (or orientation) is the same as the original wp, and you should be ok.
I'd buy a decent brand, because you don't want some cheap stuff make you have to do the job again in two years.
Mine was Omix Ada, which is really a US MotorWorks sourced wp. Have a look on Rockauto and the likes, a good wp should not cost you an arm and leg

It's a shame we have to go to USA to get our bits. It would be nice to find an aussie supplier with similar prices. Cost of parts and express post from USA is usually cheaper.

AheheHEM.....how long ago did you buy this water pump? I've just bought one and was speaking to Repco a few days ago. $140 for a chinese made unit.

EDIT: I ended up buying a Chinese Protec brand unit for $55 from a couple of honest guys running a mail order business from home selling mostly water pumps and consumables.....have been for 7yrs. I picked my pump up, so got to see their operation and talk to them. Protec has been making water pumps a long time and warrants this one for 3yrs.
