Default 2002 95 water pump change

I have googled and search but didn't find anything. Is there some instruction and things to look out for when doing the job. If anyone has done this job, how long did it take?
It is getting pretty cold here and I have to do it outside.
One more thing, the water pump comes with the one gasket that is behind it but there are some other gaskets and "O" rings that are shown behind it. Is it necessary to change them as well or is it fine for just the water pump gasket alone?

Here's a link that might help: http://www.scribd.com/doc/23134799/Water-Pump-Replacement#fullscreenn

If you send me a PM with your email, I will send you my copy of the WIS water pump instructions. I have not replaced my water pump yet, it's just another project in the que.

I changed mine about a month ago and it took all day. I did have more to do than just water pump. The pump bearings went out on the old pump and the pulley cut into the timing chain cover and i had to drain the oil and clean good and jb weld the groves. I also had an issue when I took the pipe that leaves the water pump and goes to the turbo loose. One of the copper washer seals (there are two) was cracked and I tried to reuse(dumb) but I did not have one? Ended up going to local NAPA and just looking through everything they had until I found one close and filed to fit. They are cheap and you should order with the pump when you get it.

Thanks for all the help. I helped my son do the job and it took about 6 hours. The only thing that was a bit of a problem was the screws holding the casing together. Only one snapped and I had to find another bolt. Good job though,
Thanks.

It's a long but easy job. Lots of stuff to remove and replace but nothing too horrible to access. 6 hrs is about right.

Good deal, glad that worked out. I'm glad duramax2002 gave us a heads up about the two copper washers that could possibly be damaged, I'll add those to my shopping list. Did you every get any opinions on whether to use any sealant on the water pump gasket?

I didn't use any sealant.
