1986 Ford F150 i6 Help

One of my neighbors is an older gentlemen with a 1986 F150 i6 and the water pump needs to be replaced, so I offered to lend him a hand. He doesnt have ac. In full what needs to be done is belts, water pump, upper hose, lower hose, and thermostat. Does anybody have a good writeup and or good directions on replacing his waterpump? Never worked on a ford before and I really dont want to screw his up. Any help would be nice.

Thanks

Tell him to buy a Haynes. It has enough info in there to guide you. I did the same with my fathers Ford

Water pump is pretty self explanatory and easy when you're looking at the engine, especially on older engines.

an 86? lol.. i'm pretty sure you are going to just have to pull the fan, drain the fluid, pull the hoses, pull the pump, pull the thermo housing/cover and then do that backwards.

Ya it looked that way to me, just took a look and it seems pretty self explanatory.

I tried to post search results for "water pump", but it wouldn't let me link it.
