SOURCE: i'm looking for torque specs on the water pump

Fig. Exploded view of the water pump assembly mounting-4.3L engine


To install:

  1. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
    NOTE The water pumps on some of the engines covered may have been installed using sealer only, no gasket, at the factory. If a gasket is supplied with the replacement part, it should be used. Otherwise, a 1 / 8 in. (3mm) bead of RTV sealer should be used around the sealing surface of the pump.
  2. Apply sealant to the water pump retainer threads.
  3. Install or connect the following:

    Water pump using a new gasket. Tighten the water pump retainers to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm) for 4.2L engines, or to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm) for 4.3L engines. For 5.3L engines, tighten the bolts to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm), then to 22 ft. lbs. (30 Nm). Coolant hose(s) Water pump pulley. Tighten the pulley bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm). Fan or fan and clutch assembly Serpentine drive belt (if equipped) by positioning the belt over the pulleys and carefully allow the tensioner back into contact with the belt. V-belts (if equipped) and adjust the tension Upper fan shroud Negative battery cable
  4. Refill the engine cooling system.
  5. Run the engine and check for leaks.

Hope this help to solve it; rebember rated this post. Good luck.

How to get bolts out of a torque converter on a 99 Nissan quest

Where is the torque converter? Transmission installed in car?
If so there is often an access plate on the bottom of the bell housing to get the bolts off with an open end or box wrench. If the access plate is on the top you often have to pull the engine/transmission, release the TC bolts, then split the trans from the engine to replace the torque converter.
If you've broken the bolts and there are stubs in the TC you can try to drill them out and use an EZ-out bolt remover. OR just replace the TC.

2002 chevy cavalier transmission how to take it out

you have to support the engine with an engine brace, drop the sub frame after all things connected to it are disconnected, then pull the drive axles, unbolt anything connected to the trans mission like lines, starter motor, unbolt flywheel to torque converter bolts and then transmission to engine bolts, then pull transmission from motor and drop out of car. go to the library and get a repair book on your car it will show you what has to be done then you can decide if this is a job you can handle.

Trying to remove transmission on 94 chevy 1500 pickup, got all the scews out but still seems to be stuck. any suggestions on its removal

Did you remove the bolts connecting the flywheel to the torque converter? The converter
slides back off the motor along with the transmission for most GM's.
Also there should be two alignment dowels which protrude approximately 3/4 inch off
the back of the block. After making sure the flywheel is disconnected, usually you can
rock the transmission (secured to a transmission jack of course) side to side to break it
free. If you need to unbolt the torque converter you can rotate the engine with a
breaker bar on the crankshaft pulley bolt. Hope this helps.

Need to pull a siezed engine from a 99 avenger (can't turn it over to undo torque converter bolts) Can it be pulled without pulling the transaxle? (is there enough clearance to pull the engine with torque...

There isn't enough room to pull the engine without removing the converter. You can try to separate the engine and the trans far enough to get to the bolts with a wrench. Or remove the engine and transmission together and unbolt the two out of the car.

How to remove the transmission in a 1993 lincoln continental

this is an older rear wheel drive car you don't need to remove motor, i would along with these instructions get a repair manual (Haynes) for reference purposes, jack up the front of the car , support on frame with jack stands, remove battery cables, remove starter, all electrical plugs on tranny, then remove access panel for torque converter bolts located at lower front of bell housing, after access plate removal rotate torque converter to the point where you can not only unscrew converter bolts but also remove drain plug to drain converter. To stop converter from turning during removal of nuts you must lodge a large screwdriver between the flywheel gear teeth and the engine block at an appropriate location ( at starter location usually) after removing all torque convert.nuts jack up slightly or support trans with trolley jack and 1 ft length of wood under pan, proceed to remove all bell housing bolts except for the top one, remove that one last after removing the drive shaft of course, also make sure you remove the transmission crossmember after jacking up trans slightly. the idea is to allow the tranny to only be attached at the end of removal by the one top bell housing bolt and supported by the trolly jack and two bye four or better 3/4 in thick 1 ft X 1ft plywood board after unscrewing the last bolt the trans. can be pulled back away from the motor and lowered down. the installation is reversal but aligning the torque converter to engine can be problematic sometimes (patience and strength) you can do it!

Torque converter removal

is it front wheel or rear? if front you have to take down the motor and trans together by unbolting the 4-6 very large bolts and drop the entire front assembly.
if rear drive disconnect the drive shaft and unbolt the crossmember get a trans jack or one with wheels that work and unbolt trans from motor.
remember to SPIN the torque con when reinstalling.

96 Chezy Blazer Manual Transmission Removal

Did you remove the transmission lines too? did you remove the linkage from the gear selector to the transmission? And last. Did you remove the plate near the bell housing? If you remove that plate you'll see the flywheel teeth that the starter engages to to spin the engine over.. And you'll see bolts holding the torque converter to the flywheel. You need to remove one bolt.... Turn the engine over by hand at the crankshaft with a ratchet until the next bolt is in a position to remove. Remove it and continue till all the bolts are off.... Then try to remove the transmission... You absolutely have to unbolt the torque converter or it won't pull out. The space to get those bolts out will be fairly tight.. A ratchet wrench would be the fastest. A regular ratchet might fit.. But if it doesn't a box end wrench will work.
