Question

Gatores

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.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
