SuperCyril2: Great job Mike. Thanks for the video. Hey guys, this info is for anyone who's having their engine temp go above normal operating range after new pump install. This is happening due to the thermostat not letting coolant flow to the radiator. What I did to correct this was, first make sure engine is cool. Remove hose from top of water pump. Locate the overflow hose thats runs from the top of fill resevoir to the left side of the rad. Disconnect this hose from the rad. Go back to the hose you removed from the top of the water pump and hold the hose up so you can pour coolant in it to fill up the radiator until the coolant runs out of the hole where you disconnected the hose for the overflow on the radiator. Hook both hoses back up where they go and restart vehicle with the pressure cap off the refill resevoir add coolant as needed until proper level has been reached. Goodluck. Hope this little description helps you out. Cheers

MrKaarons: Wow what an awesome video. I do have one question though. Can the thermostat be replaced by putting it on the water pump while it is still outside the vehicle? It seems like it would be a bit easier to do it that way and then install the entire assembly.
Danny Loftin: Great Video 1A (as usual)... Thanks for the fast forwarding action... If only I could fast forward my repair and be done in 12 minutes... PS... Please make a new intro to your videos...Maybe a different car, and no more of the very slight vocal stutter that I catch every time. It's all good though. Not gonna stop watching. Thanks for your diligence in making all of them. D
