My daughters car is in need of a waterpump. It has the 3.1 motor. Is it a big job to replace it or if you are handy can a average guy do it. Thank you so much in advance for any insight you can give.

Its a very simple pump to change! If I remember correctly, 4 bolts on the pulley and 5 on the pump. No special tools needed.

Make sure you keep track of the position of the water pump before you pull it off. There should be a notch on the housing of the old one as well as the new one. This notch helps align the water pump so that all the bolt holes line up. If it is not aligned correctly the bolts won't fit. You will see what I am talking about when you put the gasket on the new pump. You will likely rotate it several times and/or flip it over to get the holes lined up.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
