Due to my work time constraights I had to shut down and go to bed yesterday. The full instructions are greatly appreciated. I should be able to locate the 2 bolts that I missed earlier and replace the water pump tomorrow. Now that I know where to look I should be in a much better frame of mind to do this job. I also will grant a $15 increase for abonus. ragwing 5
