Water Pump Replacement

Installing a new water pump:

1. Start by ensuring that the engine block surface is clean and dry.  Use a Scotchbrite cleaning pad to remove the old gasket material from the block.
2. Put the gasket on the block and then install the two bolts together with the waterpump to hold the gasket in place.  There are two guidepins on the engineblock that will fit into the two holes in the water pump housing.  You may need to use some force to get
them in.  A small plastic hammer can be used, but be careful to not damage the gasket.
3. Use the starpattern when you tighten the bolts, and be careful that you don’t over-tighten the bolts.

You can also consult the tensioner instructions for tips on adjusting.
