Dave, you know the water pump rebuild ate moorfan's lunch when he did it, mainly because of the seal installation. I think he went through 2-3 seals before he made or borrowed the right seal installation tool and got one in without shattering it.
For the small difference in money, I think I'd be tempted to try one of Capristo's pumps. They're supposed to flow more than the OEM, as well, which can't hurt with a 550.

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
