Water pump

Just noticed a leak today coming from my secondary radiator so ordered a replacement from Mishimoto and a primary radiator from them. Figure get them both upgraded at once. Now my question is should I replace the main water pump while the front is torn apart? Truck has 73k miles on it currently.

Sure it's the secondary rad that's leaking? while anything's possible, I have yet to see one of them fail.

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

I see.
How much can you get a new pump for?
They certainly aren't uncommon to fail so if it's a decent price, I'd go ahead personally.

K yea I'd definitely do it. Much more comfortable than hanging over the grille, and the coolant will be drained anyways.

Just make sure to get the correct year. The later pump has two ports at the front while earlier years won't. You could still use it, but you'd need to buy the plugs, which Ford sells.
No point in adding other possible leak locations though.

Cancel that order before you start down the road. You will be in for some headaches down the road.

I sure am glad I let my factory rad leak instead of jumping onto the mishi boat some years ago. Lo and behold, my rad doesn't leak anymore...fixed itself, I didn't do anything to it.
