Perfect fit, easy to install, all parts included. Easy job except removing the fan blade, would have been nice to have been forewarned by the store/online/or installation instructions as to how to remove the fan. Turns out a specific tool is needed, causing another trip to borrow the right one to complete the change out.

          Comments about ToughOne Water Pump - New:

          This is just a good replacement part at a middle of the road price. The threaded fitting on the nose that the fan screws onto is protected from damage and the bolt holes for the pulley line up correctly and without fuss. I believe the gaskets could be improved but I always use Copper Coat Gasket Sealant anyway. It is made of cast iron so getting it lined up and getting a bolt started while keeping the gasket in place is a tedious exercise, but I found that a roll of tape placed on top of the harmonic balancer makes a good spacer. Good luck yall!

          I had my first one installed for 363 days, I returned it and got a full refund. It started to leak from the weep hole. I am now on my second one and it has been working fine. Just hope it lasts longer than the first.

                      A:

                      Hi Adam, glad to help you! This part comes with a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                      I just bought this water pump T3131, It says Assembled in USA of U.S. and foreign materials. I typed in the number below T3131 which is 130-1820 and did a google image search and all GMB water pumps came up, sooo, looks like this is a GMB water pump with Toughone name on it. I looked up the Toughone address off the box which is 5008 Airport Road, Roanoke, VA, and that is owned by Advance Auto, so looks like Advance puts their name (tough one) on GMB water pumps. I don't know where the last answer got ASC from.

                    • A:

                      You don't have to remove the fan clutch, you need a big adjustable wrench or a 1 7/16 open end wrench to remove the big nut on the back of the clutch that holds the fan/clutch assembly on. The belt will slip, so you either need a long rod to brace one of the pulley bolts on, or a pry bar to hold the pulley while you break the big nut loose.

                      A:

                      The amount of money you will pay to have the water pump replaced will depend on the machanic you take it to. If you would like to replace it yourself you can visit your local Advance Auto Parts store and purchase Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle. The book will direct you step by step with detailed instructions on how to replace any part on your vehicle. The book will also inform you of what tools you will need to complete the task.
