Well i narrows the water leak down to the weep hole in the pump, and its collecting inside the timing cover, i ran to a sweet place called Car Parts Warehouse, they carry everything from cheapy house stuff, all the way to name brand performance parts, such as the pile of Brembos lol. I got a Gates pump, hopefully i can steal a lift at school tomorrow and get this in so i can go back to NY this weekend.

I lost the place where i was keeping my parts and engines and i need to sell them ASAP as my apartment is now covered in parts, not including the mass of parts in my car including a 255....

For you non belivers lol... Heres my closet, which has the least amount of stuff...

Update on today...

I finally got my car into school to address the waterpump, i got the car up, unbolted everything pulled the rad for shits and giggles then got into the timing assembly. 1st i noticed ribbing on TOP of the belt...Not good, then i see that the waterpump is rusted and pitted as i figured. Then after removing the rest of the cover, i find that not only was the timing belt never changed, the pulleys and bearings are all original. Now at this point, ive broken nothing but 1 timing cover bolt. I loosen the tentioner to release the belt so i can get to the pump, breaking the rusted 75k tensioner bolt in the process. So not only am i up shits creek with a bad belt, but i have no tensioner and a broken bolt in the block. So now that im panicing cause i have no usable car to get parts, i go to the trunk and see if theres anything from the old 2.5 back there. And there wasnt, but what was there was my EJ255, so i broke out the 10 and 14mm sockets and cannibalized the 255 for its bearings and pulleys, so now they reside happily with my new waterpump and timing belt. The End

You seem to have very bad luck. Either that or you're doing something wrong.
