Need help please!

Hey guys, I'm on a hunting trip from Albuquerque to South Dakota with my son and his buddy. Filled up in pueblo co and smelled coolant. Looks like its coming from water pump. I've added about a quart of 50/50 elc. I picked up a pump in Colorado springs and just got to Cheyenne Wyoming tonight. I could use some pointers on replacement. I have tools and coolant to do job. How long will it take to do on side of road for a first timer? What is the torque spec? All info will be appreciated! Delta's are still good with load on truck. I lowered my alarm trip points and keeping close eye on coolant level. We are going to see if it will get us to our spot so boys can start hunting and I replace pump. I'm going to sleep will check for reply about 6. And will check in places I get service. Thanks in advance everyone. Richard

Your gonna have to get a fan wrench. You can rent these. Besides that just basic hand tools. If by chance you turn around and need help Im in Trinidad. PM me if you need a phone #.... I wonder if you could get away with some radiator sealent temp fix...stuff works wonders

You know I noticed mine doing the same couple of weeks back. If it makes you feel better, I've been driving it like that for a few weeks now with very minimal drop in the bottle, still between the marks and I still have good deltas. Curious to see your outcome and where it is leaking at on the pump. Never seen mine, worked on lots of smallblock Mercruisers though and I know the pump will "weep" from a hole under the pulley shaft if it's going out. Just curious if it's the same idea on ours. Good luck!

Thanks again guys! I've put over 600 miles since i noticed leak and added 1.5 quarts of 50/50. I would prefer to do at home with a ford or bpd pump so I'm going to wait for now. If it does fail completely I've got the Autozone pump. I will update on what happens. Thanks

Hey guys, Truck made it back home. I put over 1600 miles on it since I noticed the pump leaking. I puked 2 times on the trip back. Truck and trailer weigh about 16,000 total. Deltas and temps were good at all times. Added a total of about 5 quarts on trip. I did pressure test on degas and looks like head gaskets are leaking. Dropped off at ford to have several things looked at. Truck is still under esp warranty. Will update when I get back.

Note on pressure test I did. When I got back in town I filled degas to min level when cold. Under load pressure would go to about 16.5 psi. After reading tuscany's thread and talking with bismic I released pressure in degas after engine was at operating temp and coolant expanded. Pressure would build to 10-12 psi under load. I did block test from napa and test fluid turned green. Truck has 122,000 on stock bolts and gaskets. Truck has ran between 11,000 to 12,000 lbs for the last 74,000 miles and pulls trailers about 12 times a year. Will update when I hear from ford.

Update. Truck had a leaking egr cooler. My warr did not cover coolers so I had ford put in bpd oil and egr coolers in. Warr did cover water pump and other items I had addressed. So far I am happy with bpd system. Coolant pressure stays between 3-5 psi depending on ect.

I did some tests on ect and eot. Truck got new tstat which now keeps ect at 192-197*with oat between 27-41*. My other tstat which was ford and about 12000 miles on it would run at 182-189* in similar temps. Oil temps will follow behind about 5-6* at 60-80 mph. In town they run about the same as ect sometimes 1-2* below.

I also tested temps with fan duty cycle at 100% to check the cold weather kit operation. The lowest oil temp I saw was 173* while the ect stayed at 192*.
