My things came in today that I ordered from eBay. A 32mm wrench, hub holder tool and tension-er pulley. Decided not to get the pulley kit since I noticed that the idler pulley has been recently replaced. Had a difficult time using that piece of shit crankshaft pulley hub holder tool, probably would of had an easier time with a long piece of metal like a screw driver. Now the hard part is over, the pulleys are easy to remove,idler pulley screw is long but not the tension-er pulley.
Normally the pulley's have a dust cap on them, mine didn't have 'em. I went online and ordered them through pelicanparts, Protection Cap for Drive Belt Deflection Pulley $2.50, and Protection Cap for Water Pump and Alternator Belt Adjusting Pulley $2.50. I didn't have a dust cap on the tension-er screw either, decided to order that also, PROTECTION CAP $1.00
I started messing around with the old pensioner pulley to see if I could repack it with grease. Was able to take the ring off, noticed not much grease in their, needed replacing, I repacked it with grease, tested it and it works. Since I had a new I installed that one instead. The idler pulley I was able to repack too, didn't need it but decided to put more grease in it, reinstalled it.
Since I had my tools out, I decided to change out my sparks plugs, didn't take no pics. I put it all together and started the car. No more noise, wait, wait that tiny noise I hear, sounds like it's coming from the water pump pulley. Someone's advice online was to spray it with WD-40, the noise went away, thinking I might need a new water pump pulley or maybe a new water pump.
Does anyone here know if the water-pump is going out, if it would make a noise, or give any signs that it's going out?
