Icon6 That just aint healthy

well i was gonna change my radiator fluid in my 88 ranger when i noticed it was orange. NOOoooo rust!! so i bought a radiator flush kit and tried that, still no luck. now im gonna swap out the radiator water pump thermostat and it's housing.
i bought a new radiator from the junkyard for like 50 bucks now i just need some help getting out the water pump. i have read all of the how to's and search on the webs for hours on end and found almost every method. now that i have done my research i was wondering if anyone wanted to lend a helping hand or more importantly a couple tools, or both if anyone is down to get dirty in south jersey just send me a pm because my buddy that i usally work on trucks with has just went in to the marines and just wondering if anyone likes to work on trucks like we did and im sure this is the place to find a friendly fellow that will provide me with assistance

They DO have orange radiator fluid you know.... Green with rust turns into a poop color, and noticeable.. so i would assume you jsut had orange radiator fluid in it
