Few more bits removed over the weekend, engine mounts in place ready to bolt down once the water pump and low temp thermostat are fitted. Managed to get 10 litres of old coolant out, will disconnect the front return hose and blow out the remainder with my home made tool, guessing should be another 8+L

I have spent a few more days working on the old girl!... I managed to get the remaining coolant out of the system using my home made tool by disconnecting the two feed & return hoses by the transmission hanger. In total I managed to get out a full 18lts. New parts arrived and needing a bit more elbow space I removed the engine lid so that I could access the tank for refilling the coolant (when I get to that bit). In the meantime I fitted the new pulleys and torqued them to the right NM. For info the upper pulley is at 46nm (mine is an 8.Cool the lower Pulley was 23nm and the tensioner was at 60nm.

Next I fitted the new Peirburg Water Pump and a Low Temp Thermostat, I found that these were really easy to install with the Exhaust system removed (glad I took the time to do this as it made access and removing the old ones so much easier).

I decided to take DeMorts advice in another post and purchase a new vacuum tool as the one I had previously bought was just a cheapy and to be honest was sh*t and that was before I even used it.. so for an extra £60 I got something decent and run a quick test before going ay further to check for any air leaks on the parts I had fitted. It held at 20 on the gauge for 5 minutes so I guess it is now good to go for the coolant to be added tomorrow.

Have added a few more pictures for anyone interested who may be doing similar jobs over the winter - before and afters of pulley, pump, thermo, pipes etc.

Yep, Good work. A sensible maintenance path to go down.

Like I always say, these jobs are the things that separate enthusiast owned cars from the other 90% that are for sale.

Most people think "Well if my water pump isn't leaking, it's fine", etc.
Trouble is if does go it can wreck your engine, so preventative maintenance is crucial in my view.

Keep up the good work. Thumb

Thanks for the comments, the car had been parked up for a few weeks and I noticed a very small collection of coolant on the floor so turned to the forum for advice. After reading some of the old threads on here I guessed it must be the water pump on its way out and as the car was on 91k I decided to change it. After removing the pump, which was the original, I discovered that the bearing had quite a significant amount of movement so I do feel that I caught it just in time ..... and as we all know 1 job always turns into 10 jobs as I then realised that the pulleys felt worn so decided to change the lot while I’m here and now everything on the back end is off and access clear I might as well add the spark plugs to my ever growing list!

Draining 18l of coolant is good but it still leaves about 5l in there.

I had the same issue, coolant left in the heater etc? I filled the system up with water and ran until warm to get dilute remaining coolant drained throughout the whole system and I then flushed it out by filling from the rear and draining out of the rad hose at the front until it ran clear.

I haven't got a vacuum pump so I finally filled the system and burped it and added extra coolant as required until full. Took a while but I'm confident that all the sludge and muck has now gone.

Why go to such lengths to get it all out? does the last bit drag some sludge with it or something?!

I usually just empty, fill with water, run then empty and then fill with coolant mix on a new to me car. Never seen any sludge or muck really.

Subsequently I spill as little as poss during the job then just fill it back up as any mechanic would do.

Must of got the majority of the old coolant out, the 18 lt I measured, a fair bit I missed plus it had been leaking so I don’t think I’ve missed too much... I was pleased that there was no sludge to be seen, in fact the system is very clean. The stats say that it takes approximate 22.5ltr, so on with the vacuum pump and I managed to get 20.75 ltrs in so far and no doubt will need a top up once it has settled and the engine run. Definitely worth buying the pump made it a much easier job Grin

HI Wasz,
I fitted a LTT and my car had some sludge which I think may have come from an old fashioned leak sealant. If the coolant is clean, I would probably just rinse the system out too.
