If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Required fluids drained, water pump and crank pulley off...

Removing the water pump was an extreme PITA. Only broke one stud :P

This thing did NOT want to come off.
It’s gasket wants to stay too.
Have to extract this broken stud. It has studs on the bottom and bolts on top. Probably has to do with the thickness of the casting in each place.
This portion of the job took way longer than it should have. And required more hammer and prybar than expected.

Today’s progress was not very good. I did wire brush and prime a bunch of the sheet metal, at least.
