Maniacmechanic1 Looks like Junk lost all his photos on Photobucket like me.

He talked alot and often descriptive too.

Happy Corvette Forum no longer has my C4 D44 Build photos though.
Still no one better than me building them.

The Torch Search for photobucket picture problems. It's all over the net. PB started charging $399 a year to release the pic for web hosting. Basically the "owner" can see them but no one else

White81 Junkman, the instructions were a great help. Thanks again.

On a side note I am looking for a shop manual on DVDs. Do you know where I can get them?

It's an easy fix. The hardest part of the whole job is keeping the gaskets in place when you go to put the new pump on. Make sure that they don't slip out of alignment.

Junkman2008 Welcome to DC Killertiller.

Make sure that you go back and edit your profile to include the YEAR of your C5, in case you need some help with something else. The year makes a difference with some repairs. I have plenty more repairs like this one documented here on this forum for the C5. You will find that most of the common issues that this car experiences are not that hard to fix at all.

killertiller Thank god for this thread. I tackeled this job and thanks to this thread it was simple. While I was there I finally installed my vararam, cleaned out my radiator and changed my oil. One thing I did do because with one attempt I knew it was gonna me a motha f'er. I silicone the gaskets to the water pump. I just did it on the case of water pump to the gasket where gasket over hangs the pump. not getting it in between the gasket n waterpump. I let it dry over nite, It took about 5 minutes to install it. I did try and find those hose pump pliers locally but no one had them. Once I did job I didn't even lose a second to dealing with the clams. My basic pliers worked flawlessly. I guess it all depend on where your hose clamps are placed if the tabs are easy to get to, Mine were simple. I never could have had such a smooth and easy install.
