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.
