Default water pump?

Hey y'all back again with another question. I blew the water pump gasket on my 302 just curious how difficult if at all to change the gasket. Any advice would be great thanks

Not difficult and no special tools needed. If you can turn a wrench, you can do it. For your first time give yourself 3-4 hrs. Take your time, its just unbolting stuff, make sure the gasket surface is clean thou.

Like orangepeel said its pretty simple to do, I would however just go ahead and replace the water pump as well if it is original .
RTV is your friend here as well.

It's not very difficult. But, having someone who has done it always helps!
