Water pump might be about the easiest job there is on these trucks.

The reason it goes after a coolant change around so many miles (?) is the sediment gets stirred up and puts the coup de grace to what was a marginal seal by that time. That's why I run coolant filters:

May as well do the tensioner and idler pulley bearing. Tensioner is around $70 @ NAPA, and it's got a steel pulley.

you're kidding, right? When doing the water pump in a cummins, all you need to pull is the pump....that's all. no belts, shrouds, fans etc. Just the pump. I've had a harder time with the oil filter.
