Thanks for that info.
You're still going to need to remove the water pump, because the pump housing gasket is underneath the pump. Removal and installation procedures are as follows:
Disconnect the negative battery cable, then place a drain pan under the radiator drain cock.
Carefully remove the radiator cap, then open the drain cock on the radiator and drain the cooling system.
Loosen the four water pump pulley retaining bolts while the accessory drive belts are still tight
Loosen the alternator belt adjuster jack screw to provide enough clearance for the removal of the alternator belt.
Using a 1 / 2 in. breaker bar, rotate the automatic tensioner down and to the left. Remove the power steering/air conditioner belt.
Remove the two nuts and bolt retaining the drive belt automatic tensioner to the engine, then remove the tensioner.
Disconnect and remove the lower radiator and heater hose from the water pump.
Remove the eleven water pump-to-engine retaining bolts, then lift the water pump and pulley up and out of the vehicle.
Clean the gasket surfaces on the water pump and front cover. Lightly oil all bolt and stud threads except those requiring special sealant.
Position a new water pump housing gasket on the water pump sealing surface using Gasket and Trim Adhesive D7AZ-19B508-B or equivalent, to hold the gasket in place.
Apply Pipe Sealant with Teflon D8AZ-19554-A or equivalent to bolt No. 3 (see fig.) before installation.
With the water pump pulley and retaining bolts loosely installed on the water pump, align the water pump-to-engine front cover, then install the retaining bolts.
Tighten the bolts to the following specifications:
Numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 to 15-22 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
Numbers 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 to 71-106 inch lbs (8-12 Nm).
Hand-tighten the water pump pulley retaining bolts.
Install the automatic belt tensioner assembly. Tighten the two retaining nuts and bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
Install the alternator and power steering belts. Final tighten the water pump pulley retaining bolts to 15-22 ft. lbs. (22-30 Nm).
Position the hose clamps between the alignment marks on both ends of the hose, then slide the hose on the connection. Tighten the hose clamps to 20-30 inch lbs. (2.2-3.4 Nm).
Fill and bleed the cooling system with the appropriate quantity and coolant type.
Connect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check for leaks
