Just having a lil fun with you, but guys he is right with this. I've seen it done a couple of times.
THink you mean add 5-10 minutes.

The slimmer head, and better flex lock really save a lot of time.

I managed to knock myself out and off the top of the truck when one of those 1/2" drives snapped. Don't cheap out, odds aren't in your favor when you break something thats being pulled on that hard

So which one is right henry, ive got this on a few different forums and want to make sure the correct spec is up. My manuals are just the paperback ones. you have acess to the most updated stuff.

I have a 2003 also, and Alldatadiy.com has it listed at 260.

Im having a hell of a time finding a spanner wrench to rent around here as well as a 3/4inch torque wrench. Advance, O Reilly, Auto Zone, no body has what I need. Even called Sunbelt Rentals about the torque wrench. I may just have to buy the spanner and use a 1/2" - 250 ftlb torque wrench and then give it a little extra bump. Any thoughts?

go to a tire repair shop, they should have one. They need them for semis and such. Otherwise implement dealers will have them or big rig shops.

NAPA might too. They deal more with HD stuff than the other stores.

Thanks for the write-up!

For those who haven't done one, doing a tutorial is several times harder than doing the job itself. It's a big donation of time, and we deeply appreciate it!

tire and fender liner removal are optional as is lifting the vehicle, just makes getting the pail under it easier with it in the air, i never remove tire or fender liner anymore, extra wasted step.

Some say the pitting isnt normal, but even the new ones I get have it, I dont know whos right whos wrong, trucks ive done still run fine water pump wise. Again dont know whats right and wrong.

I used a strap wrench to hold the fan pulley and a wrench to turn the nut in a pinch. Worked great both ways.
