Did the hard part (for me) today. First jacked the car up. Had to do it one side at a time because the front centre pad is missing. Could have used a block of wood, I guess. Then struggled with removing the underpans. Heads of screws rusty and a couple rounded. You would think there would be a way to drain coolant without having to remove 10 or 12 screws and the pans? Getting too old for this under-car work
Should have bought a lift years ago.
Next removed the upper/lower rad hoses and the one to the aux pump. They have probably been on there for 25 years and didn't really want to come off
. Had to cut just one - the upper at the t-stat. The one that might be a problem, is the short piece from the oil cooler. It will likely have to be cut to get pump off. I haven't yet been able to locate a replacement. It is just a short straight piece (part 1122030382). I have some 5/8" heater hose that might work but it is slightly undersize and has thicker wall, making it harder to get on. I will check with dealer tomorrow to see if they have one.
Next job will be to swap pumps. I have the bolt layout printed and will keep it handy in case I screw up
