No it's not. The last water pump I DoD was on a series 60. That was easy. The hardest one was on a l10 cummins. In a plow truck so the hood would not open.with the shaft going threw the timing cover with the pulley for the alt. On the front side. Pulley would not come off till I burned it off with a torch

On the 92 series they had a drain on the outside of the pump. So if the seal leaked it would leak to the outside. They would plug up with rust dirt . Then if the seal leaked it went onto the base

yes it has the clutch fan ::)  is there anything that's going to fall out of the back side when taking it off the block I think there is 8-10 bolts that hold it on and 2 air lines one small one that goes behind the pulley  and one large that goes in the top   can I get just the bearings  so I don't have to buy the hole unit PLEASE SAY YES  :D

You can do it. Take the fan off then the clutch. You would think it would leak air with that much play in the bearings.

it may  but I cant hear it     I wonder if that's why it will start to run a little hot when pulling a hill    you should be able to hear the fan come on correct  on most trucks you hear the squeak when the fan come on I don't hear it on this    thanks for the help

well finely got it off tonight wasn't to bad the bearing was so bad it rubbed a spot in the flat plate that the clutch bolts to its the gm clutch fan every one tells me throw it as far as I can then pick it up and throw it again  :D I can get all the parts to put a  Horton clutch fan on it plus the clutch fan used for 300  I'm thinking it was leaking air and not letting the fan on cause the temp would get about 200 when pulling a hill with a load
