7.3L PSD - How To: Replace Water Pump




What do you think about this video?

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!

beatachevy289: Thanks for the video. Doing this tomorrow.

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.

kevjay777: For me getting the fan clutch nut started back on the threads is the hardest part. Nothing else has been a problem, but the damn nut doesn't want to go back on grrrrr.

Engine7601: Great videos! Have you ever serviced your own A/C, I would love to see a video of it!

dreggsta: why didn't you just leave the belt on when you tried to knock the fan clutch off? it helps lol.

needmorediesel: I have an OBS 7.3 PSD though so my fan is different than yours. But still very much so a pain in the ass.

Michelle Franck: Hey Trey! Thanks for the video and the entertainment. My daughter and I are changing the water pump in our '93 F350 and we dropped a screw in the nastiness and it was NASTY! Awesome video. If two ladies can do it, anybody can do it with your video!

Trey Spooner: It's on my list.

Michelle Franck: Oh! and Trey, we thoroughly disagree on one thing that you mentioned. The fan clutch is NOT the hardest part. Getting the hoses to come off is the hardest part. LOL

peterv56: I have a 1999 7.3 with a six speed. The fan was damaged during a water pump replacement and I never replaced it. That was 10 years ago, I pull a 12,000 pound trailer and it has never even gotten close to running hot. I am replacing the water pump this weekend because the water outlet rotted. If I have to belch the truck out I will just do everything at once.

Trey Spooner: I replaced both.

matt dirte: did you replace the pump or just the seal

sulphurriversnorkels: Great video. Tnks

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

needmorediesel: That fan sure is a bitch. Took a fan wrench and a lot of hammering with a friend of mine holding back on the pulley with a strap wrench to get it off. If you have an air hammer you can get the removal kit that the Ford techs use that makes it WAY easier. Is that ELC coolant you have in there? I gotta do that to mine. I flushed my system last summer but used the Ford green anti-freeze with the VC-8 additive. I didn't know about ELC coolants really at the time.

Dave Leo: Years ago I used to say, "give me a 350 4 bolt main", Now it's a 7.3. If my eyes are correct ,I thought I saw the intercooler pipes from Banks Power. Did I ?. I have it & it's great. Thanks for this video, you did good.
