Default Tahoe/Yukon late 90's owners

Well, after owning my Tahoe for awhile now, going 6 years I think, I gotta get the water pump changed out. I haven't had much trouble since owning it. The previous owner handed over a crapload of receipts from past repairs and such. So that said, been doing a little research as to how difficult it would be youtube, and so on, and looks to be fairly simple. Mechanically inclined as I am, gonna do it myself. Any idea to make my adventure quicker or whatever, lemme know.

Nah not overheating at all....but keeping a close eye on it. It's a 5.7 My ex boss has a '99 Tahoe same style as mine and told me about it. It's leaking underneath...says there's a small drainhole on the bottom of it. Looks like the waterpump itself is 45 bucks.

If the Vortec 5.7 is the same as the TBI and carb'd 5.7's (which I'm pretty sure it is), it shouldn't be too bad to replace. There is a weep hole in the bottom that leaks when the seals are going bad inside it. It's an early warning system.

The one on my truck had 4 bolts for the fan and 4 bolts to hold it to the block.

If it's a 5.7, you can do. I recently replaced mine. I'm damn near retarded when it comes to auto repairs.

Here are the links I used:
