i lined up the cut out and the bolt is 3/8" below it, it just wouldnt pull up into the cut out
ive put the whole shebang back as it was, i discovered the grinding noise from the pump was the dipstick housing rubbing on the waterpump pulley!!!!!
when the thermostat was changed they aligned the dipstick wrongly
ps IS THE LEFT SENSOR ON THE THEROSTAT HOUSING THE TEMPERATURE SENSOR THAT ACTIVATES THE ELECTRIC FAN?
