Next I separated the pump from the housing and cleaned the gasket surface. If you plan to keep your truck for any length of time, do yourself a favor and use the Mits OEM metal gaskets, makes the job alot easier the next go around. In my experience both OEM and aftermarket water pumps have trouble at around 70 to 90K and should be replaced whenever the T-belt is changed.
Dont forget to replace the Oring that goes on the heater core pipe that goes into this hole in the back of the Water pump housing.
