    Has any one any knowledge of these.
    A friend gave me one to repair, I ordered a replacement motor only, but its the same as the original.
    That is it wont spin when connected to a battery.

    If a new motor hasnt got it working it sounds like the shaft has siezed.
    if so, remove the motor and see if you can rotate the impellor and shaft by hand.
    If it stiff keep working it but the seal will have failed letting coolant into the shaft tube.

    Did you try it direct to a battery or on its proper connections on the header tank ?

    Complete new pump is around £105.... a rip off if ever there was one.

    Does the motor work before it's attached to the pump? Caravan 12v convention is brown -ve and blue +ve.
