Radiator/water pump/front cover

I am going to be tacklin the replacement of my radiator, water pump, and resealing the front cover as the crank seal is leaking. Just wondering for those who have done this job what tools are needed? All my tools are at work so Im trying to come up with a list of tools I need to bring home for the weekend. I know a lot of the bolts are 10mm. But if you guys know of the other tools needed off the top of your head that would be great, otherwise Ill just look at it and bring home what I think. Also any tips and pointers to make the job go as hassle free as possible.

That is the perfect time to fix your KDP. You will be doing almost all of the work anyway. I do not know the tools you need here.

1997 3500 club cab 3.54 gears towing & camper pkg. Still stock with a built transmission at 120k. 4" exhaust, 4kgsk, and exhaust brake waiting for installation. 37337 upgrade. Still need ideas for improvements for hauling 15k fifth wheel.

I believe the fan on the water pump is 36mm, and an adjustable wrench will not fit down there. I had to buy one of those special wrenches that are slim for removing the fan to get it off.

Air chisel is about the easiest and most pain free, and I agree perfect KDP tabbing time. Although I can't help with bolt sizes, 10,13,15 for sure baring tool for holding the crank if you have one, can't remember the crank bolt size at this point in time, pretty much just need a basic tool kit though

Now would be the best time for the kdp fix your already in the case and shouldn't take more the half hour extra time if you take all the backing plate bolts out and put some loc tite on each bolt the clutch fan nut is a left hand thread I believe

No, just untension the belt from the pump and it comes right off.
It will probably be the easiest water pump you've ever replaced.
Doesn't even have a gasket, just an o-ring.

Nope. Take the belt off and unbolt the water pump. Two bolts. Throw the new one on, belt yoir done. The water pump is to the left of the fan pulley with the solid smooth pulley on it..
