I'm not even that far (if I remember correctly), and I've already
rebuilt the transmission, fixed an interior cooling pipe, replaced my
water pump, and now the thermostat housing -and- that water pump
needed replacing. On top of that, one of the water pump's mounting

there to use the bolt-out bit without removing the radiator...
