So today my boss/father in law (who wants my job /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif) asks me to change the water pump in his 89 lincoln because it is bad. I say ok. It's just a water pump, I can change the one in my '79 blazer blindfolded with 1 arm. 3 hours later I vow never to let anyone con me into something like that again. I mean honestly does it really require 9 bolts to hold on a stinking water pump? And of course just to get to those 9 bolts I need to remove the shroud and fan (bleeding knuckles), powersteering pump alternater, AIR pump, A/C compressor, and brackets. Once finished I went and beat on my stress dummy for a while then proceeded to do the exact thing again in reverse. Afterwhich I hugged my '79 and promised I would always remain faithful to it's genius simplicity.
