Take off fan and fan shroud. then the radiator hose. then the 6 - 8 bolts that hold the water pump on. clean surface of block where gasket would go. use rtv sealant on water pump and seat the gasket to it. let it sit for 10 mins. then install water pump, hoses and fan and fan shroud. if you need more help you can go to your local parts store and pick up a haynes manual. this will have more detail and pics too.

How to instal fuel pump on 1987 camaro iroc?


This is a big job. You need to drop the fuel tank being that the pump is installed in the tank with the sending unit . You almost need to drop the rear axle assembly out of the car to remove the tank . My best suggestion would be buy a repair manual at your local parts store .. spend the 20 bucks or so for it and then read through the process of replacing the pump and see what tools you need to do the job . After reading throught the manual you will have a very good idea of what time it takes and what all needs to be remove to access the pump .

Transmission for an 89' Camaro Rs ?


Definitely you can save by buying used. Check for local auto dismantlers in your area. Be sure to ask them what kind of mileage the car had on it when they pulled the tranny. Also replace filter and pan gasket while it's out.

Antifreeze leak


It could be the hose clamp if that's where is leaking from, but if the water pump has some miles on it, it could be time for a new water pump. Good luck
