Question about 1988 GMC Jimmy
Normally to replace belts we don't take the shroud off its just an uncomfortable and tight job. The only way to take the shroud off is to disconnect the radiator and pull the radiator and shroud out at the same time. Good luck.

Do NOT use a prybar between the water pump housing and the engine block to separate the two components; this can cause scratches and/or gouges, which can prevent proper sealing.
Do not disassemble the water pump; if the water pump is damaged or defective, the entire unit is replaced.
The drive belt can be used to hold the fan stable while loosening the mounting fasteners
Loosen the fan bolts, then either remove the drive belt before the fan and shroud ...
... or wait to remove the belt, along with the water pump pulley
Once the cooling fan and shroud are removed, access can be gained to many of the engine components, including the water pump
Be sure to install the two rubber seals between the water pump, oil pump and cylinder head before installing the timing belt cover-1.3L and 1.6L TFI engines
The 1.6L MFI engine uses only one rubber seal between the oil pump and water pump
