|DougE||I found the water neck a b*t*h to install leak free and ended up replacing the bolts with studs so I could slide the water neck into place without any possibility of wiggling around and messing up the sealant. You could use a couple of studs to slide the water pump into place and then replace with bolts after installing the other bolts in their locations.|

|PhillyDak||Today I had to REinstall my water pump... It was leaking after my first attempt. I bought a new FelPro gasket for 99cents at auto zone, cleaned both surfaces like an anal retentive crazy person, jacked up the rear pumpkin to drain more coolant out of the block, used brake cleaner to clean both surfaces after using a razor to remove old paper gasket. Cleaned everything again. Used thin film of permatex on water pump, stuck gasket on, put super thin film on engine block. Was anal about not touching or moving anythingout of place. Installed bolts only finger tight and waited an hour for permatex to set up. Tourqued to 13 foot pounds. Now have to wait 24 hours to re-fill and see if it worked.|

All done, and waiting on my mounting bracket to get here.
I'm going to use all of my old solenoid and control mounts that are already mounted underhood and in cab. Just need to hook up the three wires and a ground.

Couple months ago noticed a distinct but random tap tap sound from new ish engine. 8k miles. Got progressively worse. Yanked it apart and yikes. Cyl 6 piston is literally toast. Time for GP hard decisions. Was a Spendy 4.6 stroker build. Builder retired and moved away... no wheeling for a while. Bummed.
Bewildered... sent oil for testing and full of aluminum and babbit...

|MetalMountainGoat||Finally got the heater box installed. What a pain it was. PO did some cobbled work that made it much more difficult than it should have been. Everything is working now though. Awaiting my defroster duct and then I can reassemble the dash.|

|cJAY904||Took my son out for a little off road. Wasn't planning on getting muddy, but got in a place where I had little choice. It was fun and has been cleaned almost back to where it was before.|
