Standard repair time according to alldata is 3.8 hours. So add more time for the do it yourself type. Good luck

The "book" times are based on knowing what you are doing and have average tools on a vehicle with no obsticles like rusted bolts that can slow a job down seriously.

A 1991 could be an open book as to how long it would take. You may consider doing lots more than just the pump while you are there too. Do you want to flush system, new hoses and thermostat while it's drained for the pump?

What engine is in this - I haven't checked on possible procedures as of yet,

1991 Nissan/Datsun Maxima

Guess there's just that engine for this year. That type pump is fairly straight forward in many cases if there's some room to work. DIY vs pro with the tools and experience, time for job at this age I'd about double it the estimated times,

If you decide to do it; be SURE NOT to get coolant on the timing belt. completely drain the cooling system first and I would advise placing a very absorbant rag under the pump and kind of stuffed between the engine and time belt cover to catch any antifreeze that may drip/drop down onto the belt. Reason: the antifreeze will cause damage to the time belt and cause it to break prematurely. when this belt breaks it causes major internal engine damage. The last broken time belt I repaired on one of these engines cost the owner $3000.00 parts and labor. too expensive to take chances with. good luck with the project! rick
