Here's basic rundown. Disconnect battery, drain coolant, remove fan shroud, fan clutch, and water pump pulley. Remove water pump, clean mating surface on block. Apply RTV sealant to both sides of new gasket, install water pump and torque bolts to proper torque, install pump pulley and torque to proper setting. Remainder of procedure is reverse of removal.
