ok that housing gasket is avaailavle. they are very cheap. be sure to get the second design(new design)

I do not recommend reassembly without replacing the seal. It usually crumbles.

now you say the pump is not tight but it wont come out?

below is a pic of the water pump housing. The seal I am referring to is the blue seal

Turn the pump CLOCKWISE to remove and COUNTERCLOCKWISE to install it. If you turned it counterclockwise in attempt to remove the pump, you may have bent some of the tabs on the pump. The bent tabs could be keeping the pump in place.

A baby can do it. there I said it. Be sure to check the tensioner while yu are at it. proper tension, and the bearing is good on the pulley
