Anyone Around east FL that could help me with a waterpump on my 2000?

I'm down from albany to deliver a transmission and pick up a car to bring back to boston and my waterpump decised to take a crap on me. Thankfully I have most of my tools with me and could do this, but I don't know about doing it in the parking lot of a part store.

I believe that I am in or near a town called Mims? just off 95 about 40 miles north of Cocoa Beach. If anyone could lend a hand please give me a call at 518-209-9773

Or if anyone wants to make some cash trailering me up to Jacksonville I have a Uhaul trailer on the back of my truck to which my truck could be loaded onto. I brought an 08 Toyota Seqoia down to GA on it, so my truck SHOULD fit.

Anyhow if anyone out there can help please let me know

Thanks

I wish I was there for you. As long as you have the fan clutch wrenches you should be ok.

no fan clutch wrenches :-( I did pick up a new pump at napa in Titusville FL. Course in my drive from there to a hotel I think my truck was completely out of water.

I topped it off before I left the napa, but I'm not feeling good about this at all now. it was only a minor leak from the weep hole but by the time I got here to this hotel it's pretty bad. Lets say no water in the lower rad hose bad. course the engine still starts and runs fine right now, and I filled it up with hot water from my hotel room, and ran in for a few minutes and have heat at the dash and seem to be getting some flow thru the radiator.

Just have to wonder if it may be too late and I pushed it to far trying to get to someplace reasonable safe to do this. The guys at Napa said I didn't want to be caught there after dark working on my truck :-/

Sucks that I am 1100 miles from my shop in albany, ny with a limited assortment of tools (mainly needing a ladder for the 6in lift) and in a days in parking lot outside the Kennedy Space Center waiting for the engine and the ambient air temp to cool so I might be able to work on this.

If there is anyone in the area of 3755 Cheney Highway in Titusville, FL and knows of an autozone where I could get the clutch tools please give me a call or stop by :-) Look for the Orange F250 with a 6in lift and its owner curled up in a fetal position under the engine.

so it seems that advanced auto 2.8 miles from where I am sitting has the fan clutch set. Now I just need to find a good way to hold the pulley.

so after a bunch of walking to find the tools, I begin this project, only to find out that the fan nut tool from advanced auto seems to be bent or otherwise mangled. So now on to walk another 6 miles to have them replace it so I can try this again.

I am soooooo kicking myself for not packing my huge adjustable wrench that I use for swapping hitch balls on my reciever. That would SOOOO work right now.
