ummm lets see if i can remember what i used.. Bear with me cuz I work on cars all day I can't remember every tool i use...

fan clutch tools
I think the fan cover or shroud however u spell it is on by either 8mm,10mm bolts or screws
You will need a 8mm and 10mm sockets
screw drivers to loose and tighten hose clamps
I think thats it I can't remember but it will get u started...

Oh and along with the sockets get 8mm and 10mm wrenchs for the fan clutch pully u will need something to help hold the pully into place while u try to loose the bolts are do what I did and use a cordless impact i have a 14v mikita small and light weigh thats all i can think of hope that helps... oh and a 1/2 driver to loosen the tensioner on the drive belt i used a 1/2 driver with a small extension ok if i think of anything else i will post again

sorry to hijack, but just curious. how many miles have you all gotten out of your stock water pump? i'm at 124k on mine, but i've got a friend with a 97, and his lasted close to 140k. they outlive most.
