  • Water Pump replacement 96 F350 7.3 PowerStroke DieselPut 50 miles on it and no leaks or water loss.Also replaced the radiator cap, they go bad fast and it's a $5 part!When replacing any water in these diesels you need to make sure to put anti-cavitation treatment in. I use Ford's it says to use 4oz per gallons of water.Failure to use any anti-cavitation treatment will cause major engine damage, this engine had a little show of some cavitation. Buy test strips and see if it's time to add treatment to yours. A front cover costs more than $1000, it's cheaper to take care of it. The 330k mile engine I pulled the water pump I used to fix this one had no cavitation marks on the front cover, this engine has almost 266k.

    Just bought a 97 7.3 and water pulley I'm guessing the bearing inside that messed up and is loose so my pulls is messed up ate a bit into the pump took the fan off so I can drive it home and not have to worry about the fan flying off then the pulley moved forward causing the belt to come off and is leaking fluid front the pump so this helped out a lot

    That's a lot of work to use a used water pump.

    Can you tell me is it normal for the upper radiator hose to be filled with air and you feel hot fluid on each side a mechanic told me these engines make steam and its normal

    Question about the fan clutch. It says it reversed threaded but it sure looked like you were going lefty loosy righty tighty when removing it and replacing it. Am I seeing that correct? I’m gonna replace my pump in a couple weeks, just trying to figure out the details. Thanks

    Once you install the pump and lower radiator hose shouldn't you be filling the pump with coolant to check to see if there are any basic gravity leaks through the pump seal first in case you gotta re-do something??
