Car overheated coming home. Stopped and removed thermostat. Still running hot. Found an open auto parts store. Bought a water pump. Stopped in the parking lot of a boarded up 7-11 and got out the tools.
Disconnect the battery.
Remove the serpentine belt.
Remove the motor stabilizing arm and bracket.
Remove the alternator.
Remove the water pump pulley.
That gets you to the water pump.
Had all the tools I needed. Weather was good. No less than 6 people stopped to offer assistance. One was a local guy who was prepared to jump in and help, said he was in the middle of an engine swap in an old Jeep and he could do anything we needed including towing me to his shop. By the time he stopped I was almost finished and already had the serpentine belt back on. The job took me 3 1/2 hours.
The actual job starts at 2:30. I doubt any of you want to watch it, but the video shows the cramped space you have to work in with the motor mounted sideways.
Be Prepared. There was some luck in the day, the problem was something I could fix, I found an open store that had the part, but fortune favors the prepared.
