I'd point out that transmission seals are generally made of compounds that are not damaged by petroleum products, as they are constantly exposed to transmission fluid, which is one.
Water pump impellers are often made of very different compounds, and you're basically comparing apples to oranges.

Best of Luck

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
