After mine literally split into 2 halves, I got it replaced. It cost $197 dollars which was $100 for labour and $97 for the pump. I think it was well worth it because I can imagine how long it would have taken me and how frustrated i would have gotten.

Hey there not too bad to change.

-Remove radiator
-Remove clutch fan (Hardest Part)
-Remove water hoses
-Unbolt pump

Should be about 1 or 2 hours work at the most.

the worst part of this job is cleaning the old gasket from the block as you can see what your doing and if you leave it on the pump may not seal properly. You should try it on a AU or later as the pulley is pressed onto the pump and very hard to get off, even with the correct tools

My water pump cost me $50, installed myself. But i get a discount at car parts stores.
The old gasket is a pain too..
Had a bit of trouble getting the large nut (fan nut) undone from water pump shaft. Someone used loctite didn't they. Idiot, they are threaded opposite to keep it on.

If you are going to buy a water pump make sure that it is a good quality ( made in Japan,australia etc) I bought a water pump for my Ea from repco that was made in India. It lasted 2 weeks!
Man, I was annoyed. Changing the water pump is not something you wanna do every fortnight.

I actually did mine with the radiator in, that way you can leave the bottom hose connected to the radiator and you don't have to lose so much coolant (yes, i know i'm a cheapskate!).
They're really easy to do... just make sure you clean the block thoroughly so as to not leave any gasket behind...
