B30 water pump woes. 140-160

I have never installed a Gates water pump for any of my customers Volvos as I prefer GMB or original Volvo water pumps and have been using them for over 20 years, but that may not be the issue.

Do you know which exact thickness head gasket is installed in you C303?

There were 4 different thickness head gaskets and the 2 seals at the head need to be the right height to match.

The 2 thinner head gaskets use the same height water pump seals and those are the ones that always come with the water pump.

However the 2 thicker head gaskets require taller water pump seals.

IIRC, the Volvo kits would come with 2 different thickness sets of seals for the 4 cylinder water pump kits, but I can't remember if the OE B30 kits came the same way.

I have at least 1 of the taller water pump seal sets and a water pump gasket in stock.
