Water pump is off (moparboy got a ? also)

Got the pump off the dakota today. Lets just say it took 4 hands to get that "hidden" hose off. Inside of the pump next to the impellor was chewed up. Since the pulley came off the shaft (pressed on kind), the shaft wobbled enough to screw the insides up. Had to take the whole fan and water pump out as an assembly since there was no way to remove it on the truck. Well gonna install the pump tomorrow, and hopefully try to get the fan clutch off the old pump so I can put it back on the new one.


Mopar, the bypass hose from the pump to the intake. Do you guys remove the ac compressor or is there a trick to hook the little hose back upon 3.9L's?

I have always pulled the a/c compressor, alt, and that big alum bracket and just layed them off to the side.

this way you get a clear shot at the water pump and bypass hose to ensure there are no leaks in the future.
