2000 Ford F-150 Question: how to change the water pump

I am replacing the head gaskets and I AM HAVING problems taking out the water pump -
Answer 1
if you look at the new pump, there is a shoulder that goes into the block. when removing, especially when it is old, you have to soak it in blaster and then gently pry out a little at a time evenly around the pump. clean off the surface before installing the new one. Roy -
