Remove bracket for serpentine belt tensioner. Remove shrounds etc
around the otp half of the cooling fan. Yur gonna need a means to
break that big 32mm nut on the water pump shaft, which involves yet
another means to hold the fan from turning. Other than that its a
straight forward 4 bolts out 4 bolts in. Double check the 6 or 8 bolts
on the back stamped steel pump impeller cover before you install the
new pump. I have found them loose on a few occasions. Use gasket
adhesive or such to stick new gaskets on the 2 places of the new pump
and allow to setup. Its also a lot easier if yu have two alignment
bolts made up or you may damage gasket etc until you get it in place,
but alignment bolts are not a sheer necessity. Just cut heads off two
bolts and grind a slight taper to them and turen them in the engine
block one on each side, slip water pump over alignment bolts, start
two other bolts then remove alignment bolts and install the the
remaining two water pump bolts....
