water pump - pipe?
I have a '95 Mazda B2300 2.3 (ranger) that needs a new water pump. It looks fairly straight forward, except for the big rusty pipe coming out of the pump, behind the alternator that connects to the lower radiator hose. I'm hesitant to start pulling the pump out, since I don't know whats involved in getting the pipe unhooked from the pump. Is it just forced into the pump? Should the pipe come out with the pump? Is the pipe somehow attached to the block?
