tackling stuff on the D2 and questions.

Going back to PR at the end of the month for a week and I am going to be tackling a few things on the D2 with a local mechanic that helps me with it.
1st is replacing the old water pump, it's started to leak when I left. I want to take care of it before it goes out and at the same time I will replace 2 hoses and deleting the throttle body heater coolant hoses.
I will also replace the fan clutch for a newer one I have.

Question On the water pump gasket. Can I spray tacky sticky stuff on both sides to the gasket or just the side that meets the engine?

What is the best type of scraper to remove the sealant left on the engine from the water pump gasket?


I will also replace the Drag Link and the track rod.

i normally just spray it on one side so it stays in place so you can get all the bolts in with out any issues

IMO better not use any sealant if not needed, use a bit just on the pump's side as to keep the gasket in place untill you fit it to the engine, to clean the mating face i recommend this https://www.amazon.com/Permatex-8064.../dp/B0018PXX2I

from the WSM

Refit
1. Clean coolant pump and mating face.
2. Fit new gasket and coolant pump to cylinder
block. Fit bolts and tighten to 24 Nm (18 lbf.ft).
3. Connect feed hose to coolant pump and secure
with clip.
4. Ensure mating faces of coolant pump pulley
and flange are clean. Fit pulley and tighten
bolts to 22 Nm (16 lbf.ft).
5. Fit auxiliary drive belt.
+ CHARGING AND STARTING,
REPAIRS, Belt - auxiliary drive.
6. Refill cooling system.
+ COOLING SYSTEM - V8,
ADJUSTMENTS, Drain and refill

Had fun with this awhile back.

Used a block sander (foam thing with sandpaper all around) and that dramatically reduced my time cleaning old gasket.

Sprayed the tacky stuff on the gasket to attach to engine. THEN put water pump on with bolts.

No leak, no probs

Good luck!

It's 36mm but a normal wrench is too thick for that , you nedd a dedicated fan clutch wrench like e.g. https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Mercede...-/123645361482
