Any repair manual for ford econoline van water pump 1988

UMMM, Ford never made a 350. That was chevy! As for the water pump. You don't repair them, you just replace them. This is a very easy motor to work on. And the pump is up front and in your face on that motor. Just take a good long look around. Even take some pics. Cuz you can these days. There are a few things that need to be addressed in the correct order. Both for removal and then installation. I haven't done that old a motor in years. But what I do remember is that if you just take a moment. It is not hard at all. If you get into trouble, let me know. I will go out to the shop and find one of my books. I can also ring a buddy that has one. He can put you on it for sure. But you should try yourself first. It's the only way to truly learn! Good luck, Jason
