I usually cut a block of wood (oak is preferable to softer material)to a suitable length and place it in back of the counterweight, wedged between one of the projections on the counterweight and the water pump housing. I have experienced failures of this nature on Mercedes diesels installed in marine applications. Sometimes folks overtorque the fasteners and over time they will fail at the highest point of stress (right under the head).
