I came across a tech article in an issue of the Continental Comments from years ago- it said to be real careful about rebuilt water pumps because if the rebuilder replaced the rear cover bolts with standard head-size bolts it will interfere with the timing cover and may have pushed it in in your case. The solution was to grind down the bolt heads. I'll try to find that article and post it here. It's good advice that can be easily overlooked.

Here's the article I was referencing on water pump-timing cover interference. Theo may wish to move to a more appropriate section.
