2000 PSD waterpump

Anyone out ou there replaced one of these bad boys? Mine seems to be slinging juice, and I was going to have a whirl at swapping it out this weekend. I've turned wrenches for quite a few years, but though I could ask you folks just how much of a treat I was in for.

Much thanks for any advise.

I haven't swapped one myself ( but I'm due, mines seeping a bit too) My mechanic buddy walked me through it and said it wasn't a "mindbender" about an hour labor, mostly getting the old hardware off. I could be wrong. I hope someone would correct me if I was?:shrug:

Well, I don't know first hand, but I have heard that it's quite a job because of its location. Before the truck was mine we just had it replaced at a mechanic. I think you may have to pull the radiator and some other things before you can get it out. Just a thought.:shrug:

its not any worse than a gasser... replace the t-stat and sheet metal t-stat housing while your at it... you will be horrified as to how rusty it will be (mine rusted through and caused a leak)... either buy a ford fan clutch wrench or you will have to improvise as to how your going to get the fan off (a chisel or pipe wrench and there are a few others i have heard off).. but advance auto here in town has the correct wrech (which is much easier then rigging up something), get the diesel coolant additive from ford to put back in it after your done

its not bad

Is there a good place and a bad place to buy the water pump? I have heard of recurring waterpump problems by a powerstroke owner. He kept getting bad parts. He finally got a good one when he went to the parts place and checked everyone until he found one that he liked. Now no problems for I think 80k.
Will a manual such as haynes walk me through this? Thanks.

well i don't know about good or bad but a ford pump at the local dealer where i live was 1 dollar cheaper than the reman available at autozone... when they told me that i about passed out in shock that the dealer was cheaper... mine has done well so far

i don't know about better but if i can get a ford part for about the same money as the discount parts houses i will buy ford... but thats just my preference


a better (and cheaper) manual is the ford service cd... they can be found on ebay (bootleg versions for around $10-$20)... the ford cd with show you step by step and has pictures of the actual motor/truck using ford approved procedures where as the haynes can be general info and are vage sometimes

im a mechanic at a busy shop and im doing one right now. book time is only 2.2 hours which means any tech could do it in about 2. it is easier to access everything if you pull the radiator. with the fan shroud and radiator out of the way it makes using the fan clutch tool a little better. then you pull the pulley, the small bypass hose, and the surrpunding bolts. replace torque the new bolts to 15ft lbs and reverse your proceedure. as for brand of pump since i have to warranty and stand behind what i do on customers cars i will only use AIRTEX or MOTORCRAFT. and dont forget the additive.
