1985 Bluebird Flat Nose / Radiator / WP Question
I haven't been able to find information on replacing the water pump on my 1985 Bluebird FE Flat Nose. My problem is that I can't reach the bottom bolts to the water pump from the top or below.. There is snow on the ground here and very cold!.. If I had access to a pit or lift I could easily reach up to it. My thoughts are to remove the front panels and remove the radiator. Good idea? Anyone done it? Big job? Would I be opening a can of worms? Also the bus can't be completely disabled for long.
I got a quote from a local truck shop and they want $1,200 to do it. I think thats terrible especially considering its just a GM 366 Gas Engine. Super Easy and available Pump. Thanks for any advice.
