My water pump won't come off!!! I tried and tried, got pry bars and hammers oh my! Nothing is working and now after all that I managed to make the water pump housing to start to leak. Now I have to take that off and inspect it for damage. I most likely will need to replace both. I'm not sure yet till I get it off but, I'm sure it's from just running strait water before . This is why I always like to make sure I don't have to work the next day. Unfortunately I didn't do it this time

... That sucks man ...

When is your next day off?? Tuesday? or Wednesday?

Have you gone back to the drawing board and the instructions to see if you are missing something?

Not missing anything. There are only four bolts in the water pump trust me it should come off. My only guess is that it's fused to the housing since I ran strait water for while before but, I'm not sure on that till I get a look at it. I had to take a break and will wait for another day to mess with it again.

Well I wake up today and go look at the car and my jack which WAS holding the motor up has sunk ALL the way down! But smart me decided to put a jack stand under the motor just in case it did sink like that. Luckily the jack stand caught the motors slow downward progress.

Had an interesting sighting today, it was same color as sleepyboy's and possibly the same model. Had a saleen body kit, looked like a hole cut out of the oem hood for a scoop and a big box wing on the tail end.. anyone know of it?

It was driving around the shepherd area of 59 today, I waved but got nothing back.

Haha. I have an idea about my wing. If i can find out how much i need to do the 05 conversion on the rear, then i can do that so the rear ends. I really only need the taillights and trunk right or is the bumper way diff. and the rear panels?

I think the whole rear panel is different but won't know for sure till you compare them. Try finding one in a parking lot and see how much different it is from your. Lol the owner comes out and see's you with a tape measure lol measuring there car hahaha makes me laugh when i think about it lol
