Did this video help you?

89 Fox: What type of sanding pad did you used to clean the gasket surfaces?

89 Fox: Very detailed video.

Tyler Harris: do I use sealant on both sides of the gaskets that I apply

lino quintana: great job, I did the water pump on my cougar 86  5.0L  the video help a lot !!!

Ty Barrow: very impress that this video covers so much on fox body mustang, . I would of like to see the timing chain replace, other than that great video. Great lighting, no complaints on this end. Thanks for the information for future reference.

ezcondition: the hackary is strong in this video.

Bill Richman: Very helpful video; thanks!  I'm doing my 1996 Ford Bronco with 5.8L engine, but it's about the same.  Four of the bolts that go through the water pump flanges and the timing cover and into the block twisted off just below the heads.  Two of them came out with repeated rapping with a hammer and application of penetrating oil over a couple of days.  I used a small pipe wrench to get hold of them, as someone else suggested; works great!  The remaining two WOULD NOT loosen up despite several soaks with the penetrating oil, a good massage with an air chisel, hammering, etc.  So I got out the SawZall with a metal cutting blade and sliced down through the flanges on the covers right against the sides of the bolts, stopping just short of the engine block.  It was like cutting warm butter; I love my SawZall.  Then I used a big screwdriver to break off the slices of flange, exposing the bolts along their whole length, right up to the block.  A little spritz of penetrating oil and a bit of persuasion with the pipe wrench, and they came right out.  True, I'll need a new timing cover, but after I removed the old one I found several cracks almost an inch long near two of the flanges, and one right out in the middle of the cover, so it was due anyway.  Now I just hope I remember how to put it all back together!  XD

Frederick Gross: I was a bit intimidated to try this but after watching this vid Im sure I can do it.

raceforpride: Excellent video, even if you've done a hundred. I have one to do this morning and it helps to remind me, since I don't do this everyday. Appreciate the time it took you to make it. My leak is on the other side water port. Engineering screw-up. Hey FORD, fix this. Everybody that owns a Ford has had this problem,,,,FIX-IT.  THANKS AGAIN, got'ta go

Jordan Downs (L1MASTER): I thought you said customers car in beginning? You guys are a joke when it comes to auto repair. Nothing was done properly no torque on water pump balancer nothing. Come on now you sound like you know a little something so why all the bull videos and comments. If you're doing a how-to do it right not half a##

50lxnando: Also noticed a bigger radiator? What size is it? I ask because I see u are still able to run stock clutch fan and shroud with out a problem which us a concerns me possibly rubbing the fan on radiator fins.thanks

50lxnando: Do the water pump bolts that go into the timing cover run into the block? I have a bit of an issue of broken water pump bolt on left side but a good inch of the bolt is sticking out.had to wiggle the water pump out of the way.

lopezzcl54: To replace the water pump do i have too remove that bracket,tensioner, and crank pulley ? 

vansurfing: Hey to remove the tensioner pulley on this car does it come off counter clockwise?

Kira Yamato: i would never let u guys work on my car i seen some of ur Eps but that alone pisses me off the timing chain need to replace and u were right fking there u guys are now marked as crap to me i'll never watch ur video again

Robert Brand: Thank you so much I was working on my Merc GM, 302 V8 and the Studs had so much Gunk on them and Rounded off, I didnt see they were studs at first..... I have never done a Water pump till this car.

Auto Parts Direct To You: The book calls for 2.7 Hours + 0.4 for AC, and 0.2 with Power Steering, so a total of 3.3 Hours. It took us about half a day with shooting the video and taking breaks.

Guigui192: Would like to know how much time the book gives you and how long did it took you?

Auto Parts Direct To You: I wouldn't call the leak common, but it does happen from time to time. Good luck on the repair!
