Gmb Water Pumps are by far superior to many competing brands in it’s quality build, tooling, finishing and ease of fitment, giving years of reliable use. Can be used with all brands of anti freeze coolant additives.

Aluminum die cast, cast iron, aluminum gravity, forged steel, sintered iron, pressed steel, cast iron, synthetic resin are just some of the materials used in manufacture of Gmb Water Pumps.

The Gmb Water Pump Bearing and Mechanical Seal Kit’s material is decided dependent upon its performance level, quality as well as customer requirements and working conditions.

Overview  

GMB Headquarters

Established in 1942 in Osaka Japan, GMB grew to a giant conglomerate know as Global Management Business (GMB) with bases in most countries worldwide, establishing a subsidiary in the USA in December of 1976.

From it’s early years they were known for their high quality products which has since started to include:

  • Water Pumps
  • U Joints
  • Wheel Bearing and Hub Assemblies
  • Fan Clutches
  • Fuel Pumps

This review will concentrate on the Water Pumps produced by GMB.

#The Water Pump

Is a vital part required to circulate coolant around the car’s engine.

Heat produced by the engine’s combustion is absorbed by the coolant which then passes through a radiator to cool down before returning to the engine.

The Water Pump is situated between the Radiator and the Engine and is driven by a pulley through the timing belt or fan belt. The Water Pump causes the Coolant to circulate.

The revolutions of  power from the crankshaft is transmitted to the impeller through the Water Pump bearing, the Impeller Vanes in turn drive the coolant out into circulation jackets.


The Vortex Chamber of the Water Pump, filled with Coolant is separated from The Water Pump bearing by a Mechanical Seal Kit.

A sliding Seal, like the Mechanical Seal Kit, must be lubricated at all times by additives in the coolant fluid, therefore the necessity for Anti Freeze in the coolant Mix.

Gmb Water Pump Cross Sectiuon

Engulfed lubricating coolant evaporates out of the Water Pump bearing side and exits through weep holes incorporated in the Water Pump body.

Construction

The Water Pump’s Body is constructed of aluminum die cast, cast iron, aluminum gravity etc.

The Flange of forged steel, sintered iron etc.

The Impeller of pressed steel, cast iron, synthetic resin etc),

The Water Pump Bearing and Mechanical Seal Kit’s material is decided dependent upon its performance level, quality as well as customer requirements and working conditions.


Pros

GMB proudly announced that, Bearing durability, impellers coolant pumping efficiency, mechanical seal kits(sealing) and housings(ruggedness) are among the manufacturing and testing to be carried out in house.

Personal Experience with Gmb Water Pumps

Being in the Motor Industry for 30+ years and having my own Auto Repair Shop for some 20+ of those years, I experience customers who now send their Children and Grand Children to me for their car maintenance and repairs needs.

In all these years I understandably replaced a very many Water Pumps.

Yet I cannot recall having to send a GMB Water Pump product for claim or assessment in all this time,

I recall on one occasion a customer supplying his own component (Car Water Pump), I experienced Water Pump failure with this competing brand, within 2 days.

The Coolant leaked through the Weep Hole and the impeller bearing was noisy, coupled with lots of play, not present when installed 2 days earlier.

I never experienced any problems using GMB Water Pumps, EVER.

Final Opinion

Consider the quality when next replacing a water pump to your car, because it matters.

To compromise quality for price is fool hardy, as a malfunctioning Water Pump can lead to major consequential damage to your car’s engine.

Experience tells me to insist on Gmb Water Pumps
