I have the installer so I used it. I saw videos of people using a 2x4 and a hammer to install them and i cringed.
My dad had a saying that I have never forgotten...... he used to say “use the right tool for the job, but start with the one on top of your shoulders”. He definitely taught me to think things through before diving in!!

I just looked through my Ford Mustang service manual (actual Ford manual) and it says to apply silicone sealant to the keyway as well.

Mine just started leaking coolant today.
The equivalent of this page in my '88 service manual is page 21-21-21
The instruction are on 21-21-20, paragraph 11.

It's the water pump shaft seal.
It's the original pump.
When the balancer is out, will apply sealant as specified.
