It is a 2.2 engine. I took it apart and didn't put it back

Customer Question

It is a 2.2 engine. I took it apart and didn't put it back right a way. I replaced the water pump,but not the bracket and pulleys and hoses and the alt,hoses and belt. I have some knowledge fixing aircraft in the Air force some time ago.these four cylinder vehicles kind of throw me off. If I could get to the belt and radiator,O think I will be fine. I am a young fellow (66 yrs young) thanks for your ear,ūüėä.
JA: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?
Customer: I turned it off before it went 1/4 to1/2 inch pass the half way point. The radiator separated on top. I am planning to replace water pump(replaced pump) belt and hoses. Plugs,oil ,trans fluid,oil. It been sitting about a year. I put marvel muster oil in the fuel and oil tanks. Will change eng coolant.
