Sounds like maybe, you are about to take on a task, limited room and maybe a little hesitant without some steps.
Sometimes the "Real Mechanics" here, will throw a bunch of steps at you (as you see, this is my hobby, I am not a paid mechanic)
Even with my SUPER "Self-Certified-Rear-Lawn-Mechanicing Skills"
I understand what components need attention and they must be removed and replaced. But without the Diagrams and Real Pictures to sorta guide me. Special precautions and such. Or referring to another REFERENCE related to the repair. The Quick-Simple Steps are kinda worthless to me and maybe you also.
I do this as a hobby and I will suggest another avenue or two that will help you better, and get you fixed more effectively. Maybe even more Safely.
All I know about your type rig is my Girlfriend years ago had one (1984) I was tasked to change the waterpump, It was tight in there, and I used a lot of those "Military Words"!
I signed in here, like you, for a Free Question, over 500 posts later.I like to try to help the fellers with stuff I am familiar with.I did not become a member for $$$, I sorta got hooked while laid up with a Foot injury w/ complications
I am not trying to Sluff you off, for I have thousands of other questions I coulda picked to answer. But I picked you!
I started out with a Chilton Manual and a $100 set of "Craftsman" tools. That was my 1st Real tools.1981 11th grade, getting prepared w/ my 1st CJ5 (CJs are my strongpoint here) All I have ever owned, built my last 2 almost from scratch.I am a Plumber!
I recommend that if this is your vehicle or your buddy's. The owner should own a Paper Repair Manual if possible. Keep it in your rig for those "Fun Times" on the side of the road.
Lots of good info in them. Diagrams, Pictures, Torque specifications, etc, and not just for what you are working on now!
If $$$ is the big issue as far as getting a manual, The Public Library has them. Or can get one sent over (I've done this many times, when a manual was unavailable, or my buddies were just so tight, they squeaked!)
I really believe that you will perform your task EZier and more Confidently with one!
