Re: Timing belt change-ps removal
Yes I think I can be of some help. I am in the process of the same operation. I wish I could have found someone to answer my questions when I was at it. I ruined my PSP pulley ($25) trying to get it off, And broke a puller ($58) and a socket ($34). And like you I think this may be done without pulling the pump from the bracket. There are five bolts. the first four are just under/and around the air conditioner. two point back into the block and two point down. Should be able to find those. the fifth is down under and between the steering box and the bottom of the block. It is tight and in a very tight spot. Break it loose with a box end and then change to the open end as it will trap the box end, " I know " the bolt is long enough that it hits the steering box before it comes out. You can fight it out or take a pry bar and push the engine over a little and make the little extra room. The bracket was pretty tight to get out without the pump so may only be able to move it around enough to get it out of the way some. But then that is the point of this, correct? I just looked and saw how long ago you posted. If you don't have it done by now, this may help. ?
