My water-pump pulley blew apart just leaving the show on Saturday evening. I limped the car back to the grounds and Sunday began the surprisingly difficult task of acquiring a new one.
After inquiring at all the tuners and swap booths I headed for the pits where I found Paul (need_a_VR6) who was running his friends N/A throttle-bodied Golf which just happened to have a water-pump pulley that was not in use(electric water-pumps). He quickly offered it up and removed it for me immediately and would not take a penny for his troubles. This is a classic example of how dubbers are some of the greatest people. Thanks to all who offered help and words of encouragement. I got the pulley on in no time flat with help from my friends at VF and she made the trip home without further incident.
Thanks again Paul for helping me out of a bind. I owe you a couple
