You don't need any special tools. You just have to take the whole right side off (not just the clutch cover the whole thing) Just make sure that the impeller shaft isnt scored up at all. I started getting coolant into my gearbox so I changed the seals only to find out that the impeller shaft was scored up when i tore the whole thing down again. If you have a manual it is no sweat.

Replacing the Waterpump seal is no big deal, just take your time and it will come out right. There should be only one seal on your 89, later models (starting in 95?) had two seals on the shaft. The scoring on the shaft will be very noticeable if it exists.

I think they started with a new seal design in 90 or 91, but you can retro fit it into an 89 no problem, as long as its 94 or earlier. I think they used 2 seals or something? can't remember, but it is better than the older version. :thumb:
