REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



4-134 Engine
  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2.  


CAUTION
When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.

  1. Disconnect the hoses at the pump.
  2.  
  3. Remove the fan belt.
  4.  
  5. Unbolt the fan and hub assembly.
  6.  
  7. Unbolt and remove the pump.
  8.  
  9. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the pump bolts to 17 ft. lbs. Always use a new gasket coated with sealer.

4-150 Engine

Some 4-150 engines with air conditioning are equipped with a serpentine drive belt and have a reverse rotating water pump coupled with a viscous fan drive assembly. The components are identified by the words REVERSE stamped on the cover of the viscous drive and on the inner side of the fan. The word REV is also cast into the body of the water pump.

  1. Drain the cooling system.
