More shiny things :)

So I started to notice that the car was running a little bit warmer than normal. Found out my water pump was seeping out of the weep hole. In my garage the floor has an epoxy coating on it, which makes leaks really noticeable. That is if you don't have carpet down underneath your car (like I did) and didn't notice it leaking.

Well it got to the point where I would fill it up in the morning before work, drive to work (8miles) drive home and the radiator would be almost empty.
So I picked up a new Ford Racing water pump, new thermostat, new gasket's and ARP's waterpump bolt/stud kit from LRS. Luckily for me (with the help of a knowledgeable friend, not one bolt busted off. Had 2 that were really questionable. Like as your trying to loosen the bolt, it kind of has that "dead" feeling to it, and you start thinking "oh ****, please don't break....please don't break." Well the praying worked, no broken bolts. Found that it was the original water pump that came on the car. 21 years old. Not bad :) Anyway it finally let go between the shims and the timing cover gasket. Here's a couple of pics:
Just a lil leak:


Out with the old, prepped and ready for the new one:

USED plain and simple (147,000 mile water pump)

Buddies water pump bolt:



All Done!

ARP studs/Bolts and new bypass hoses :)

Plans are above parts, keeping the stock bottom end until it gives up the ghost. Basically going to keep the car a driver, with a little "pep" in it's step. Looking to track the car (drag and road course) more this next year. I just want a reliable DD, with decent mileage that has no problem leaving it's mark across an intersection :)
