Well , I dove in and there's no turning back now. Finally removed all 13 bolts per instructions from wing admin piece in the 'how to' section. I made a cardboard template where all the bolts fit , thus simplyfing install , come time for that. She had been leaking quite a fair amount of oil from the weep hole and now I see why. If you look to the right of the pic, you can clearly see the seal on the back of the water pump, and it's torn up pretty badly. Now comes the fun part. Carefully cleaning and prepping for new gasket and such.
Thanks again to this forum and in particular the wing admin for his wisdom.

Are you sure that the weeping wasnt because she has to go around in those tawdry clothers :?: After being a beautiful princess, in princess clothes, she is now going around in public with those "hussy" clothes on, showing all her private bits and making all that noise. :roll:

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
