Yes Rupe, I agree and thanks a lot for all your support. Will tear into it again, either tomorrow or Tuesday and I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks again!

The hardest part of any job is getting started! Big GrinBig Grin

Thanks for the follow up. Are there any words of wisdom you want to add for someone else doing the same task?

Yea....plan on tearing out the 2 steel coolant pipes that run to the water pump and the lower intake. these absolutely have to be removed before you can get the two studs behind them, out.
Also, figure on at least two hours to get this job done. It is not easy by any means, and definitely not a job for someone that is not mechanically inclined.

That's good advice for any "one time" type of job!

Thanks again for the follow up.
