Same engine in both, only one engine used on a first gen XL-7 - the 2.7 litre H27a - and yes, I can pretty much guarantee that someone on here has changed the pump - what do you need to know?

Unless he has some non-USA design with another engine that may have been available, thus need size or at least a location to work with. ;)

2006 introduced the 3.6 liter too, basically for model year 2007, so that is a possibility here too.

Then with that engine, you can follow along with the existing timing chain replacement thread, up to the point of water-pump access. ;)

In a nut shell...there is a ton of interference to remove AND a decision to be made as to what (if any) timing chain components to replace based of condition, mileage, past maintenance history and the obvious advantage to the proximity of those components, since you are right there.

Pump (installed) dead center here, part with the three flange studs protruding...

Hey thanks, I bought the pump a few weeks back, but then I saw the outer o-ring seal and realized it wasnt an hour job. I ordered the valve cover gaskets, and got some import gasket sealer to do the cover with, and a crank seal. I was looking at the timing chain system, but I think I will wait till 200k. I have 150k on it now with synthentic oil run through it since 50k, and regular filter changes. The present pump doesnt leak but it does have some play in the shaft and I dont want it to leave me stranded.
