Water Pump

  1. I had one break yesterday as it was a cheap alternator bolt that hold the water pump on. Summit, go figure. I got it out with a Ryobi extractor kit. Very easy took 45 minutes, that's including removing and install of the alternator.
     
  2. Thanks!
    1. After cleaning all of the muck off and going at them with steel wool for a bit it seems the end of one is cut different than the rest. Doesn't appear to be broken. Just curious as to why it go stuck. A few have some pretty bad corrosion. Looking in to replacing them.
    2. Steel wool? or not necessary?
    :shrug:
     
  3. I actually like the ryobi extractors better than the others. Basically its a reverse threaded screw. They work well.
