Water pump replacement 2000 7.3 Diesel

Just wanted to say thanks to the site and to marc for the water pump replacement guide for the 7.3. I was surfing the net looking for help when I found the site. I was really stressed when I noticed that the pump was leaking and needed replacement. I called the local Ford store they wanted $668.00 just to replace the pump. I am just a little bit more then a begginer home wrencher, with a good set of Craftsman's. So I was not sure I could tackle it. The easy instructions Marc gave made it pretty simple. He was dead on for my truck. I actually thought there is no way that this going to smooth. I was waiting for some major hurdle but it never happened. I obtained the fan-clutch puller like it said from Autozone, loaner tool you get your deposit back when you return it. I also chose to replace the belt .($63.00 from Ford). I chose to go with the pump from Autozone it has a lifetime warranty it was $159.00 Ford wanted $300.00 I'll let you know if it lasts? Replaced the thermostat($43.00) from Ford, and the upper Rad hose $22.00 KragenAuto, and the lower Rad hose $25.00 KragenAuto. It was time consuming cause I went slow so I did it right. Cost was $328 I saved about $500.00 doing it myself. Would not have attempted it without the Help!! Thanks to the site and Thanks to Marc for his simple instructions. If you find yourself like I did, use Marc's instructions and give it a try, You will save alot of Dough!!!!! Thanks!!!!
