hi there my name is don i will try to help you on this

i have Found it Easier to Remove the Engine on these Model Units when Replacing/Repairing the Water Pump.

Sounds like the Impellers of the Water Pump are Gone.
i Suggest you Use (I Use this in Al of my Equipment) DexCool Antifreeze in this Engine. It Causes Less Damage to the Water Pump like most anti freeze

You can View a Breakdown/IPL of the Engine and Mower at this Site Addy,

i hope this helps you have agreat day
