Belt tensioner crapped out and lost power steering & brakes @ 45mph on twisty mountain road.
In process of replacing Power Steering pump with updated pump.
Belt tensioner & belt all pulleys & adding cooler for PS & all lines.

Truck has 225,000 mi on it.

Should I replace the replace the water pump since it is original & everything except radiator is out of the way??. Plus anything else I might have missed.

Thanks. I have not posted in awhile as truck has been flawless.

If it's original, then I would say yes. You might also consider changing the PS lines as they are likely leaking if they haven't been replaced, same with oil and transmission cooler lines.
