So, it appears my water pump is leaking. I was very careful to tighten everything just right. My thoughts are the aftermarket pump is just not as good as Honda and the O ring is leaking. I had a bad feeling about the O ring when I was putting it on. I may have to take this all apart. Hoping to find that I DID leave a bolt loose and that's it, but if I have to take the belt off I'm wondering about hydraulic tensioner. It's new so I'll reuse it, anyone ever do this? I have looked into compressing it very slowly and putting pin back. Anyone have luck with this? Thanks
Shop manual says you can recompress and reuse..
