Default I may have set a record.

What'* the quickest water pump/180 stat swap in? I just did it in three and a half hours. Had everything apart in an hour, without using the manual. OhhhhYeeaaahhh.

Turns out my coolant problems were the gobs of fluid coming from the weephole and the bearings that were so bad you could wobble the pump.... whoops...

how many Bonneys you got D? 31/2 hours for a pump alone sounds about right to me, you work fast.

I only have the three, But I wouldn't count the two I don't drive, They're in various states of disassembly.

I did a 180 stat swap in that 3.5hrs too, cleaned the housing, that was nasty. Flushed the engine and rad, Nasty in there too. BTW, when you put the graden hose in the stat hole, try not to do it with the valve turned up all the way....

cool, you still have the 87 ? I thought you were trying to sell that one recently?

Some people find good deals (you), others dont. Messed around and forgot to submit my bid on a 1993 I found lurking at a car lot here. Everything was fine except the rear suspension

Good work, I think, but what do I know, I usually take mine to a shop for big stuff, lol.
Anyway, sounds really fast to me, alot faster than a shop!
