Water Pump and Maintenance

Hi - Thanks for the help with the stalling problem that I had. While replacing the sensor, I noticed the Water Pump leaking. I'll be replacing it soon. Since I need to take out lots of stuff to get to it, I will be doing other maintenance while I am in there...110K on the Excursion...

Here is what I am thinking I should replace:

1. Water Pump $249
2. Thermostat $22
3. Belt $26 - should I do the tensioner?
4. Upper Hose $13
5. Lower Home $19
6. Power Steering Pump $140 - It is also flakey

Can anyone recomend other maintenance while I am in there? Powerstrokeshop.com seems to have decent prices for oem parts...do you guys like OEM or other? I can save a couple $$ (maybe $125) by not getting oem, but I do not want to do the job twice...

BTW - this has been the greatest car ever! Other than diesel and oil, i've never done anything to it!

just a note....there is a special puller and installer for the powersteering pulley.......you will need a "white teflon powersteering o ring" as we call the m at work for the pressure line...they should be replaced anytime a powersteering line is removed, stretch them out a little over a shouldered shocket or a tapered punch to get them on..........and make sure your thermostat comes with a gasket. the last thing is read my H2O pump replacement article in the tech files and make sure to silicone the water pump inlet as i reccomend to prevent it from leaking....and if your over 100k and your trying to be anal about keeping her all perfect.......you may as well do the tensioner while your there.......Marc

Looking for Tech Article on Water Pump Replacement

Sorry all, I have searched for the "H2O pump replacement article in the tech files" without much luck.

Thanks!!!
