Just snapped 3/3 thermostat housing bolts.
Good thing I was planning to help a friend move stuff this afternoon. Guess I'll pay for his truck rental, 'cuz this won't be done any time soon.
Anyway, three of three thermostat bolts have snapped off. Was trying to put in the 203 thermostat.
The truck has 92k miles, and as far as I can tell, the original water pump. It looks like it's a giant pain in the *** to replace the water pump, and a bigger one to try and drill the stripped screws. Should I just bite the bullet, drain the system, and replace the water pump? Or any other suggestions?
