Question about 1994 Mitsubishi Diamante
I have a 94 Magna V6, and am in the middle of replacing the timing belt and crankshaft main oil seal. I also want to replace the water pump but havin trouble removing. I can't swing the power steering pump past the bracket to access the top bolts on the water pump. There were no leaks previously from the water pump, however I have now loosened some of the lower bolts, and my concern is if I just tighten them again this may have disturbed the seal. I don't want to put the timing belt back on only to find a leak in the water pump seal? Any advice? Thanks Adam
To access and remove the waterpump, the powersteer bracket has to be removed completely. To do this, the rear camshaft drive pulley must be removed (need a tool to hold pulley, bolt tight) and then the thin sheetmetal shield behind the pulley. This allows access to the lower powersteer bracket bolts.
Removal of the engine mount is also required to perform timing belt replacement. It also helps to increase your access room too.
I would recommend you replace the waterpump why you are there as they have a tendancy to fail at around 140000 km's.

Put silicone RTV sealant on the gasket surface and it will not leak.
comes in a small tube for 5 bucks.you can actually use it instead of gaskets for things like thermostats
