Caterpillar C5000:
Water pump removal

Hey. Hope I've got the correct model; all I know for sure is it's a cushion tire Cat, and it says "50" on the side.

Has a Mitsubishi LP gas engine, with a bad water pump. Seems that some of the bolts retaining the water pump are located BEHIND the timing belt cover. So - must the timing belt cover be completely removed (which would also involve removing the crankshaft pulley)? Otherwise, how do I get access to the hidden bolts?

thanks!

Thank you for your response!!

I found out a couple days ago just what you are saying here. Much easier than anticipated. Many engines require pullers to remove the crank pulley, but the Mitsibushi engine seems to be very well designed. Actually, the whole lift seems easy to repair. And I did find the model, it's a CG-25.

Thanks again.

Arden, You will have to romove the covers and the timing belt to replace the waterpump on this engine. We always advise replacing the timing belt at the same time since you have it off anyway. The crankshaft pulley just bolts on with 4 12mm bolts leaving only the timing belt drive spocket on the crankshaft. Goodluck
