Ok. Call me old, but this is the newest vehicle I own and the water pump crapped out. I tore into it like I do to all the 350ci's I've owned. I removed the bolts attaching the pulley to the pump and scratched my head when the pulley came loose but the fan/clutch didn't. I've struggled with it for about an hour, until I had to ask God to forgive my mouth and quit for the night.
How does the fan/clutch come off. There's what looks to be a big nut, maybe 1 1/2" dia about 2" long between the fan and the water pump, looks more like a spacer. Is this thing threaded into the pump?
My Haynes manual is no help this time, it shows pictures and descriptions of the water pumps I'm use to seeing.
Any suggestion appreciated,
have the same problem?
