Removing the old water pump from most engines requires removing the belt and radiator hoses, so this is a good time to replace them if the hoses are soft and the belts hard and cracked. We removed the radiator for inspection and to make it easier to access the pump. After the old water pump is removed, its mounting surface on the engine block must be thoroughly cleaned.
