Post When replacing and engine what else do you replace?
I have picked out the new mill for my pickup and I was wondering what else I should look at replacing while my engine is out? The water pump, belts, hoses, and fluids seem obvious. I was thinking of picking up a power steering pump since mine is buried under my air conditioner compressor, but I hate to spend the extra money for nothing.

The pump is not a bad idea. I would replace the engine mounts as well as the ps hoses. You might also have the radiator checked or even just replace it as well.

I always replace the front pump seal in the tranny if it's automatic. I was told a long time age anytime the torque converter moves in or out you should replace.

:flag: You can't go wrong listening to those two. :agree: I agree with both and if you have the money throw in a starter and alternator. :gi: If you're going to cruise you want it to be trouble free. :phatyo: :exit:

I'd replace all the normal tune up items, Filters and all the rubber items it you can afford it, but I know money is tight everywhere. I'd double check all your wiring as well to make sure nothing has been getting hot or old. Fight the urge to hear it run and make sure its right so nothing gets missed.
