So, the water pump has been removed: the repair manual said I had to
remove the crank shaft pulley, but I did not need to. Whew! I very
much hope I remember where all of the pieces go.

Rock Auto's catalog lists a few wrong part numbers for the vehicle;
that is, they sent the correct parts that the catalog claims will
match my Toyota's engine (3VZE), but a few of the parts don't fit.
Apparently there was "a VIN split" and getting gaskets that fit has
been a real pain in the ass. The coolant by-pass hose is wrong, and
the gasket, and the timing belt gasket kit.

Argh.

You may be able to borrow tools you don't have from one of the aftermarket
parts houses.

As to the 'put it back together take decent photos and verify you can see
what you need to do.

I put in a bit of water pump lube after reassembly and test.
