Water Pump Replacement for 1993 300SE

I have replaced water pumps on american and many foreign cars but not on a mecedes. I am looking for information on how to replace the water pump on a 93 300 SE. From what little I can find it is more involved
than on my 93 F350 Diesel :).
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Tony Peterman

Suggest using a felxible gasket paste to ensure that you have a water tight seal.
