Psycho,

Yes I have the dimensions. I made a drawing to work off of. I attempted to scan and send a copy to another member but for some reason it didn't work. I am obviously better with lathes and wrenches than computers. I will have my daughter help me and try to send it to you tomorrow as I am at work right now. If that fails I can send via snail mail or just email the dimensions but that may be a little hard to understand in typed form. One way or another I will get you the information.

Hi Larry

very fast reply !

Thank you very much for youre help :-)

When you scan the drawing, simply use "save as...." and save it as xxx.jpg

Jpg aren't as big as bitmaps (bmp).

The size won't be a problem for me, because i have a dsl-flat rate.

After scanning and syving the image, open youre outlook or different mail

program, compose new

mail to me and the other member and use "add file" or "add image"... then

open the image... send mail.

I have some service info from Cadillac for the 1995 cars... Version 7.0

august 2001... on cd.

If you are interestet, i can upload it to my homepage, where you can

download it...

Let me know, if you are interested.

best regards.... Eckhard :-)

Well, this is all pretty greek to me. My daughter seems to know more about this than I. I think that's how we did it last time. Not sure what went wrong but will try tomorrow morning.

I have a service manual so I should be ok with service info but thanks for the offer.

Psycho,

Another tool web site: http://www.toolweb.com/discounttools.biz/s...results&srch=kw

This is a Lisle tool. I bought one some time ago for $13 plus shipping. I recieved it in three days.

Notes:

1. The pump is removed by turning it CLOCKWISE

2. There is an index tab on the pump note where it goes. Mine was at 0200hrs. They are not all in the same place.

Once the air filter and tube to the throttle body is removed, the job is very easy with plenty of space. I ended up using an impact wrench on the Lisle tool. The dealer that installed it glued it in place.

If it won't come loose and looks corroded, spray some lime away on it and let it sit for about 20 mins. Then take hammer and hit it directly in the center to break the corrosion free. It should come out with a breaker bar easily then.

Is there only the seal (o-ring seal) between the water pump housing assembly and the pump, or is there another between the housing and the water pump cover ???

regards Psycho :blink:

There is an o-ring that is on the pump cartridge and a silicone "o-ring" seal that fits in a groove in the cover that seats against the housing.

hello All, on this topic I sure could use a plan to make my own bracket to hold the tool !!  The plan from Larry link above takes me to a message that says '403 forbidden' ....  I am halfway through the water pump job on a 96 north star in a Fiero.  thanks if anyone knows the dimensions

I went to Amazon, type:  NorthStar water pump tool and got this: https://www.amazon.com/

k=northstar+water+pump+tool&crid=2U0J3O5J1Q60O&sprefix=northstar+water%2Caps%2C184&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_15

Does this help.

Looks to be  Lisle 14440
