Default Water pump

Looks like I'm getting some good info here prior to joining this forum?
Any other info would be appreciated.
Not going to dive into this until next month when I go into a 2 month layoff from CAT.

SuperMod there, eh Mark? Cool.

Not hard to swap out at all. Standard tools, a scraper to clean the surfaces, new coolant and some silicone. You'll want to find out what the torque spec is on the fasteners.

Also, it's a good idea to take a small wire cone brush to clean out the threads in the block and the water passages.

One thing I've done before swapping out a water pump is to drain the coolant, run some anti-scale and rust remover with straight water, the drain, flush, then start in on the new water pump.

There is a special tool you will need to remove the fan blade assembly . Once you have the compressor and alternator out of the way , it's pretty much accessible . Make sure you replace the bypass hose while your there . Yes it's a pain in the a** to do but it's better to do while your in the neighborhood . Proabably won't hurt to do the thermostat also . Thats a little toughy to . Any questions just ask . Tom

Yup, so ya'll know I'm not just jackin around here.

Guess I should look around for a real service manual for the torq specs and such? Or I guess the boys on the other forum could do that also. Just like to have something on paper to have nearby.

Thanks for your input also Maddog. I don't think getting access to the 2 other tools will be a problem.

Thanks Tom. Yeah the shop already said they would need to replace that By-pass tube, so that's on the list also, along with the T-stat while I'm in there.
