Re: 1987 F150 WATER PUMP DIAGRAM WITH BOLTS
There is no chart for this but if you put the pump on a flat surface and put all the bolts into it so that they are all pretty much the same height protruding from it (allowing extra room for brackets etc) you can get it pretty close. You may need to move a few around but it's not a tragedy.

When replacing a water pump on a VW always replace the water pump bolts, use stanley steel if posible. The ones from the factory ussually break and are a pain to replace, sometimes you need to replace the water pump housing. VW has been doing great cars for a long time but they surprise you with this dumb mistakes of using low quality bolts in critical places like the water pump. Do they do it in purpose? may be...
I suggest buying the CD with instructions and diagrams. it is not impossible but important to do it right and correct torqing of bolts is critical.
Also, Imperative that you replace the belt tensioner and the small shock attached to it. These usually fail shortly after the original water pump. replacing it now is easy replacing it later is very painful.
Oh my, it has been decades since I did one of those, but what I remember is that it is a simple bolt-up installation. I had no problems with the couple that I did.
As with any water pump installation, clean up the metal mating surfaces carefully so they are smooth and shiny before installing the new pump.
There are two spots that are prone to leak after you finish. One is the O-ring where the water pipe presses in to the hole in the back of the water pump. Make sure the surfaces are clean and smooth and the O-ring is in place and straight. The other place is the seal between the top of the water pump and the head. This one is tricky because there is no bolt that holds the seal joint tightly together. You put the water pump in place and put the bolts in just snug, then you pry up on the water pump, using the fact that the bolt holes are slightly oversized to move the pump up to press tightly against the head. While prying the pump upward, tighten the bolts that secure the pump to the engine block.
align splines one inner that drives the pump, and one outer ( larger one ) your bellhousing will be flat against the block, if not rotate crank it will align the two. only when completly flush complete the repair.
trywww.autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you
A manual will have pictures and everything.
Just replaced mine. Five bolts in bracket holding tension idler, A/C
compressor (if applicable) and power steering pump must be removed to
access 3 bolts in water pump. Just push aside enough to access
remaining bolts. Email at email@example.com if additional info is
needed. Also, diagram serpentine belt before removing. Took me at least
15 attempts and 20 minutes to figure out
