Water pump woes....

so my water pump took a crap today, parked at my local feed store ran in to pay(truck running) saw the huge puddle of coolant on the ground forming, im talking liters..quick. well anyway got it on our flat bed(she barely fit) and took her to my buds house with the other F250(thankfully not a chevy or dodge lol).

Probably a blessing in disguise, drained all the radiator and saw how filthy the coolant was, going to do a full flush, anyone have the link/explanation how to? and i believe i heard the CAT coolant was a good elc? i need to get something i can get locally soon.
Any suggestions for a new water pump?

Btw. we cant get the old pump off any tips? I know its reverse threaded and you gotta pound it off but we tried so much. Any ideas?

Alright its 1am im exhausted thats about it for tonight...thanx.

I only use the airtex pump from Northern Auto, they are about $90 and is who made the factory pump. I have been told that Carquest sells the Airtex and gives a lifetime warranty for $120, that would be worth it to me. What are you having trouble with, the fan nut? Yes I would use a EC-1 rated coolant, I use the Fleetrite ELC, make sure you buy the concentrate and not the 50/50. For the flush procedure send me a PM. You will also need 20-24 gal of distilled water. While you are at it this is a perfect time to change the upper rad hose to the one from a dual alt truck so that the hose doesn't run inside the fanbelt. Not one of Ford's greatest ideas. Also add a coolant filter, you wouldn't believe the amount of sand I get out of the old filters. These cast iron blocks are constantly leaching sand from the casting process.
