Wow what a job..[img]smileys/smiley11.gif[/img]

94' 130k mi. Ultra[img]smileys/smiley16.gif[/img]</span>



</span>My water pump broke apart.[img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img] The GM part flange to shaft unwelded and the pulley flew off to take
out my belts and they burned a hole in my power steering pump's plastic secondary resovoir.[img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img]



2 belts $60</span>



1 water pump $22</span>


1 power steering pump $72</span> (epoxied it.. -$72)

Coolant $7

Power steering fluid $5</span></span>

MY Total Damages.. $166 In parts. </span>




Took me 6 hours and a six pack. All from the topside.

Remove = (R)

R Battery + terminal

Drain coolant. (to later get heater hoses out of the way)

Support engine with jack and board.

R Right motor mount completely. (just loosen lower bolts on fender) .

Jack Lift motor further carefully with board on oil pan.

R Cross over strut support (makes it easier)

R Serpantine belts

R Alternator completely (makes it easier)

R Coolant Resovoir (makes it easier)

R Dual Idler wheel

R Loose Power steering pump push it back for bolts access.

R Heater hose tubes. (pop out)

R Loose Aux support (Gen, Power steering) aluminum frame and push it back



[img]smileys/smiley12.gif[/img]Just about now you can get to that one bolt under the Power steering/Alt support frame.

</span>

R Water pump



[img]smileys/smiley10.gif[/img]Reverse to replace.</span> </font>

<br style="font-weight: bold;">
Not really bad but.. most cars are a little easier.[img]smileys/smiley8.gif[/img] </span>
