Not a difficult job. I did mine on my early 99 work truck outside at -35C!

You will need some big fan wrenches to take off the fan. Most auto parts stores have them to loan if you don't have anything for it. Might as well replace thermostat while you're in there if its old. It's pretty easy, toughest part for me was getting the fan off. There is a good writeup out there somewhere because I know I printed it off. If you need some more help post up again and I'll find my papers on it. It's step by step.

Fan nut comes off Counter Clock Wise, just like a regular nut or bolt

fan will give you the most trouble. Fan wrenches are wonderful.

get a wrench that will go on the fan and hit it with a hammer cc (hit the wrench that is). it will break loose .

you can do a water pump in a 7.3 in around an hour its a really easy job actually , drain 5 gallons out of the radiator . pull the fan , hose and the bolts that hold the unit on .

what makes the biggest difference is buying a water pump with the o-ring that has the little dimples that don't allow it to fall out of the goove , nothing worse then installing it to find you pinched the o-ring .
