1995 LT1 water pump shaft installation
Hello, I am putting my car back together. I actually changed all the spark plugs and the wires. Not fun. I am replacing the water pump drive shaft. I got the old one out. The surface where it seals seemed worn, and the bearing at the back of the shaft did not feel right. Can anyone advise me of how to install the new pump drive shaft. It definitely is a tight fit, and I don't want to break anything. I was going to force it in close enough to get the two allen screws started and then use them to force it in the rest of the way. I am not sure that is the way to go, and I believe the guys on this form are better than me. Anyone have experience in installing a new water pump drive shaft? Thanks for any help!
