Hi Alan

I seem to remember somewhere there was some talk about different water pumps or something causing the problem with fitting of the lower water rail?

I have a suspicion (which I cannot prove) that the problems I had getting the lower water rail to line up stemmed from my use of an uprated VX/Monte water pump. Like I said, I can't prove this but the water pump was the only part of the equation that changed.

It's possible that VX pumps are a bit deeper in the body, needs checking out really.
