Assuming you are mechanicaly inclined, and have the tools? Your best bet is check out a Chiltons manual for your particular car at the local library or buy one if you plan on keeping the car any length of time. Some water pumps can be very complicated to install. For instance, My Mitsubishi required the removal of the timing belt, very technical for the average backyard mechanic, but I managed with a Chilton's manual. Supplying that info here would be near impossible. Good luck

How do you replace the timing belt?

Not going to like my answer here, but without any expertise in auto mechanics, I would caution you to let someone else do it. In most cases, (don't know this specific car), involves removal of water pump, pretty extensive work. And often should do other work at same time.

(as an example, in 1990s Honda Accords, it was advised to change the water pump when replacing the timing belt. All of the labor was already there, just a "relatively" small charge for the water pump itself.)

Instructions to change a timing belt would be to difficult to post here. If you have a strong desire to do it yourself, get a manual like Chiltons or Hayes with instructions and pictures.

91 trooper water pump replacement

If your car is over-heating, chances are it's the water pump or thermostat. These two parts should be changed out at the same time because if your pump is old enough to go out then the thermostat is not far behind.

Step1 serpentine247bs_thumb.jpg First you'll need to pull out the old water pump. Look in your vehicles owners manual and find the diagram showing what all that stuff under your hood is. locate the water pump (usually underneath alternator running on the same belt) you'll need to take this belt (serpentine or other) off to start pulling the old pump. There should be a tension bar or arm that easily loosens the belt with the right size socket. Step2 Once you've gotten the belt off you can begin to remove the old pump. There should be only a few large bolts holding it in. After you've gotten the old pump out, place the silicone sealer on the new water pumpmag-glass_10x10.gif 9around the edges where it meets the gasket. Then apply the sealer to the gasket as well, just use your fingers to spread it on. Now place the new pump with gasket, where the old one was, replace the bolts and be sure not to crank down too tight on the bolts or you might crack the gasket and your pump wont seal. Step3 thermo_thumb.jpg Now that you've gotten the new pump installed, you'll want to replace the thermostat. the thermostat could be located near the water pump or on the other side of the engine. So once again, refer to the vehicles owners manual and find where the thermostat is. You might need to remove some hoses and/or lines to get to the thermostat, so just be careful not to break/bend/crack or damage anything (the older the vehicle, the better chance of something breaking) Pull the old thermostat and replace it with the new and you're all done. Don't forget to put everything (hoses, lines, nuts'n bolts) back where they came from and off you go!

Mazda rx 7 rebuilt kit clutch master cylinder.

crack the bleeder nipple on the slave cyl and get some one to slowly push the pedal see if any fluid shoots out if not you may have killed the new seal in the master cyl.
it sounds like you did every thing right its just that old cylinders get were in them and if you don't hone them out and put a new sleeve in them quite often you will rip the new seal apart on the first pump of the pedal.
any way check for presser and let me no
