AC power steering to waterpump and crank case belt size is "55.75 . Heres yet another problem I cant get to the blower right bolt on the pump because of the power steering pump is in the way. So I have been trying to get it out of the way but cant figure out how to do it I took off the bolts that go to the mounting bracket where you can adjust the belt but I still cant get it to budge. What am I doing wrong???????????? Well I have everyhting off except the water pump now Im just waiting for everything to drain. But I noticed that there is a paper or cardboard gasket in between the pump and the block. My new pump did not come with a gasket liek that I just thought I had to use the rtv on it and it would be fine. Is that true or do I need to get a gasket for the new pump also? My water pump is a goner. So I need to install a new one. Bt I have never done it on this truck. Is there anything I should know before I start tearing into it? Tips Tricks? Also what is the best thermostat I should put in it?
