That's perfect! ThanksMy brother ( @Rocknus ) did some vids recently on tearing down one of these engines. A good resource if you forget how something came apart.
6.2L Diesel Engine Rebuild - Part 1: Top End Teardown - YouTube - 8:00 mark on this vid is the water pump removal.
6 2L Diesel Engine Rebuild - Part 2: Bottom End Breakdown - YouTube - Covers the HB removal at the beginning.
Definitely will do all of those things. I would much rather replace items while the engine is tore down. ThanksI've seen and replaced failed dampers. The level to which you're going to tear it down, you'd be better off replacing it if there's any doubt. Also replace the front main seal if you replace the damper. Check timing chain for stretch while it's apart as well. (Doubt it's a issue, but you're there, only take another minute to check) And I'd advise new belts and hoses while you're in there. Again, to the level you're going to tear it down, it only make sense.
Ill be calling thm for sure. Ill update y'all on what I find out.For a few dollars more, you could easily upgrade to a higher flow Flowkooler water pump. Just give them a call and tell them what you need.
FlowKooler pumps patented impeller design helps stop engines from overheating and reduces engine temperature up to 30 degrees by doubling the flow of coolant and building system pressure.flowkoolerwaterpumps.com
Here’s a good write up on replacing the timing cover, water pump etc I did not long ago. Starts on page 5 close to the bottom. Might help you out with getting a super clean install. It it crucial to have the threads super clean and to apply a generous amount of RTV on the bolt ends. Especially on the 2 water jacket holes on driver side of the timing cover and 2 smaller holes below the harmonic balancer.
Hello! The goal of this build is for me to address issues with my J Code Surplus 6.2L diesel that I did a refresher (With Upgrades) last summer and to add a Banks Turbo Sidewinder kit on it! Recently pulled from my M1009 that can be found here...www.thedieselpageforums.com
That sucks you could not get a flowkooler water pump. I remember last winter when I was building 6 motors, flowkooler said they only had 2 left in stock. With this crappy economy from COVID, it does not surprise me that they are short handed with the manufacturing.Just an update.....Ordered a water pump from Flowkooler on 12/07/21 and have yet to receive it. Customer service is blaming the supply chain issues. I believe them but decided to go a different route and ordered an ACdelco pump off Rockauto.com. I also ordered many of the other parts recommended in the thread including a harmonic balancer, hoses, belts etc.. All the parts, including 2 years worth PM materials for all my vehicles arrived in a few days. I am beginning the tear down tomorrow.
