     Agree totally, the pump is one of the easiest components
     to remove on the engine. (how'd that one slip by the
     engineers).  It would also be an excellent time to
     pull out the Bentley and a multimeter and check
     those senders/sensors that also become accessible.
     Checking the hoses, including that "invisible"
     3 inch hose connecting the steel coolant piping
     could also save alot of future agrevation.
