Thank you for*good*communication.
do you have to tighten water pump down in a certain order or no?water pump to block -------89 lb/IN<---take note of the IN thats inch not foot very very low!!!
That's what I thought, but the instructions claimed "Proper torque is critical to avoid the fan clutch from detaching from the water pump when the engine is turned off.", so I just did the best I could by hand with a thin (cone/ tappet) wrench.A trustful mechanic told me it'll tighten itself on
I bought that exact set for the removal process...worked great in the tight quarters...best to leave the serpentine belt on, though. :bonk: I didn't think to use it for the installation. I'll go back and do that, thank you!just bump it a few times with the special pneumatic tool he let me borrow
I never even tighten the fan clutch nut. as it will seek it's own tightness and even if it's not whatever torque some engineer says it needs to be - it won't fall off ... believe me here --- it's success speaking --- 55+ years of success.A trustful mechanic told me it'll tighten itself on, so to just bump it a few times with the special pneumatic tool he let me borrow. https://www.amazon.com/Lisle-LI43300-Pneumatic-Clutch-Wrench/dp/B000JFJLTC
FYI I just installed a new fan clutch, water pump, thermostat, and hoses. Now it gets up to temp quick without the jet engine startup. Took seconds to get the fan clutch off and forever to get the fan shroud on/off.
