97 powerstroke water pump remove and install

Wondering if there are any tips or shortcuts to remove and replace my water pump on my 7.3. Mines leaking out of the weep hole and i have a replacement to go in. Do I have to bleed the system after it's together? Any suggestions would help.

This was the next question I was going to ask...... never had a problem with my 97 F250 and right now I have glow plugs and a water pump to replace. Already have the parts, so any answers to this water pump question would be helpful to me also. Thanks.

Erik

really nothing to the water pump. Its a snug fit, but nothing you shouldnt be able to do in about an hour or less, depending on your mechanical abilities. fill it up after you get er on, correct blend for your cavitation problem, go like heck... havent done glo plugs on any psd yet.... Cookie, Kwik???

plowhand has a good reputation on FTE.plowhand has a good reputation on FTE.
Once again: "Guys, find a post by 1997F-350, at the bottom of his post is a picture of his truck, next to that is "got manual" in blue. Click on it and it takes you to a shop manual."

Check down about halfway in this forum, they just discussed the water pump. Also do a search for water pump and you will get more info that you can handle.
Rent the fan clutch wrench set, and add the SCA when you refill.

Glow plugs answered in BodegaErik's other post.

water pump replaced

Thanks for the advice guys. One thing I must say is you will need a clutch fan wrench to remove the fan, rented it at crappy tire. I found my original thermostat rubber was tore and allowing coolant to bypass , that's why I couldn't make heat and it was hard on fuel. Replaced all the stock hose clamps with the screw type. I refilled it and cranked the heat and let it get up to temp with no air locks. Phew. My one ton idles and cruises so much better. Now I have to find out why I have crank vent oil coming out my dipstick...anything?

I rented my clutch tools at autozone. Free rental.
Also, put a piece of cardboard between the clutch fan and the radiator. That way when it falls from taking it off, it will not scar the radiator fins.

Got my water pump from O'Rileys. It had the thermostat gasket. Others have posted they had to buy one.

Have fun...

Do you have oil coming out the dipstick tube or just venting air?
