Question Water pump on a Chevy K-1500

Is it hard to replace a water pump on a Chevy K-1500 truck if you are doing it yourself?

Year? Engine size?

No, generally not hard at all.

Suggest you pick up a repair manual for it (any parts store or try the local library). That being said, you can also look at the www.autolibrary.org link in my signature file below.

Thank you, I just can't see paying $61.00 for a new one and paying all the labor for someone else to do it if it is simple to do.

My vehicle is not listed in the autolibrary.org. Any other suggestions?

Try looking it up for a C series (2WD truck...K is 4WD). It should be the same thing, same motor.

Barring that, go to any parts store and buy a 15 dollar Haynes manual. Good investment. You can try some local libraries, they have some repair manuals too.

The autolibrary site can be difficult to navigate until you get used to its quirks. Your truck is listed. Click here for autolibrary.org's water pump R&R procedure.

Pay attention when doing your work. Many of the K's are mad ein Canada and have a mixture of SAE and metric bolts. GM seems fond of 15mm. Be careful not to round off bolt heads with the wrong tool. Job should take less than 2 hours for a novice with a manual. Be sure to clean your gasket surfaces well.

Thank you for all your help....couldn't bring myself to paying for someone else to do it for a $25.00 part, as we all seem to do time and time again. I was told that if the person who is going to be doing it has put in a starter, an altenator and a radiator, that he should be able to put in a water pump.
