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

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.
