Exclamation Water Pump Instal HELP QUICK PLEASE

hi all, I have a 2.5 Liter 1994 YJ. I have a friend coming over in the morning to help me remove my water pump. (otherwise pay the $90 Core on top of the $31 Pump, NO WAY) Napa closes at Noon, BUT I dont know how to do it...

This is what I do Know:
Its the pulley attached to the FAN
How to remove the serpentine belt correctly
Most everything is 1/2 inch or 13mm

This is what I THINK I know:
There is a cover over it
there are 4 bolts to remove it
When Replacing tighten to 22 FTLBS
Belt tension should be equivilent to 1/4 twist around on longest stretch of serpentine belt

What I KNOW I don't Know:
how long it will take
what bolts are the right bolts to remove
how to do this properly
Specifics and useful tips (maybe from your misfortunes, learning from your mistakes)

he will be here by 9am Central Time. Thanks to ANYONE who can help

I can't tell you how to replace one(as i have never done it). But i would suggest getting a haynes repair manual for 20 bucks from an auto parts store (i know advanced auto parts carries them). That book will give you detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to do just about everything with your jeep. I have one, and it has saved me probably a thousand bucks in labor costs since i got her back in february. Good investment, if you as me.
