water pump help?

Question

SCUMFROG

I have a 96 old's delta 88 with a 3.8l. It needs a water pump, but I can't get 1 bolt out because of the power steering pully is in the way. How do I get that bolt out with out taking the whole power steering system out?

Some times you just have to do things. This is why repair shops charge $80 to $100 and hour. Can you get one of those ratchet end wrenchs in their? If you can keep lines hooked up, it should not be much to remove pump. It may take a puller, that you local parts store could provide (possibley rent).

I can get at the bolt and get it almost out, then it hits the pulley. I can't even see the mounting bolts for the power steering pump. I'm not sure if I could get a puller in there and if I did how would I get it back on (the pulley)?

Some pullers are very small. they only have an inside bolt and a stop. It sounds like you need to pull the pully. It their a hole in pully to access a extention and socket?

To take the pully off? The water pump bolt hits the very edge of the pulley if I could just move the darn pully 1/2 inch to the left it'll come right out.

Sounds like you need a puller for that pully. Could you slightly unbolt power pump to get that 1/2" space?

yes you need to pull the pulley off and it will have to be pressed on too .there is a special tool for both jobs.

I don't remeber talking the pulley off a 3.8 to replace the water pump. If you look through the holes of the power steering pump pulley you should see the bolts that hold the pump on. I think there are 2. I think they have a 13 mm head. you should be able to remove them through the holes in the pulley. Once they are out the pump will move back enough to get the bolt out.

The bolt tuoches just the edge of the pump pulley. So you can't line up the holes to go though it. If the bolt was about 2 turns smaller it would come out. confused.gif

Can I pull the pulley off and press it back on with it still in the car?

I think what airjer is saying is to loosen the power steering pump, that'll give you enough play to get the water pump bolt out.

I believe what airjer is saying is correct, I thing there is 2 holes in the p/s pulley, and they are offset abit, one of them should line up with the p/s pump bolts, then just lift the pump up out of the way.

If by chance you still have to remove pulley, these are the types of puller's you may need. I know these images might not be your exact pump, but should be simmiler.

Good luck!

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
