7.3L PSD - How To: Replace Water Pump




What do you think about this video?

Andrew Stevens: Come to find out it was my pump leaking and I have a new pump and I'm gonna do the install myself and I wanted to ask why not leave the serpentine belt on while you break the clutch fan but lose? Looks like that'd hold it tight.

Eric Hight: I laughed out loud when you douched yourself with that lower hose

Andrew Stevens: Not sure if my water pump is leaking or not. On the lower radiator hose where it connects to the water pump has coolant on the bolts and coolant is leaking off my lower radiator hose. If a water pump is leaking will my lower connector hose have coolant on it? By the way the truck only leaks when it's been driven then shut off for a few hours.

Justin Sefcik: That puke doe lol

Juan Pérez: Did you use re-build one , (remanufactured)? Or ford? How much

EvinLee Archer: installed a new pump from federated, t-stat bolts went part way in and the back one snapped, takin pump back off, threads in pump were incooect

Bobby T: Good Job .. no vise grips ever ..unless you broke something off. ..lol...the pet rooster will not break ..seems like you are rushing ..you did a nice job but made your life harder by not pulling the hoses ..belt and sensors first ..you run a risk of no start after install if you dont protect those sensors ... The clutch fan is hard I agree .best is to loosen 2 of the fan pulley bolts if you can and wedge a breaker bar to stop rotation ..i use a a big pipe wrench to grab the fan clutch nut after that ..its a tight fit but really easy ..Ive also rented a fan clutch pully kit (advanced auto parts) in the past.. wich helps ..but still difficult ..nice job and thanks for the video..

queenofspadz: Do you absolutely have to remove the degas bottle?

Ma K: Is it really neccessary to waste everyones time with useless information on how to loosen a radiator drain rooster with the correct wrench or socket? There are not any persons who haven't turned a wrench watching. Next time just get to what is important. Thanks.

Joseph Krahn: Thanks for the video

Joseph Krahn: For those of you who don't have the fan clutch wrench leave the belt on, get a 1-7/8" wrench, and a BFH.  Giving it a few wacks worked for me.

Ben “TheBen” Miller: Thats about a bitch more like it! thanks for the video it was a tremendous help

TJM2005: At 7:10 , when you brace the wrench to hold the pump against the pulley, you could put a 1/2" extention into the tensioner, and rest it against that. 

sudilos117: "Perform any and all work at your own risk."

Instructions unclear, pickle stuck in fan.

Luke Howard: how much did the pump cost

nydefense15: You do a great job on your videos, they've helped me ALOT. I've run into a kinda weird problem. I have a 2002 Ford Excursion, 7.3 PSD. i'm just starting the water pump removal and my Clinton shop manual says the fan clutch nut has left hand threads, loosening would be clockwise. other sites have stated both. Left and right threaded. which is correct? Thanks

philip sanfiorenzo: thanks for the vid,  it helped a bunch

chris curiston: Good video man! I may be getting a truck like this which needs a pump and it covers all the "gotchas" someone might usually run into without being long and tedious. very valuable to me for sure!

Trey Spooner: Ya. Tried that. Didnt work. But thanks for the tip.

mertyleTV: You made taking that fan clutch off way harder than it had to be. You could've left the belt ON while you took the fan clutch off.
