Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

It has a left hand thread which means it should be turned clockwise to remove. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

I can't figure why I can't get the bolt to break
Should I be going clock wise to loosen ?

Yes it is a left hand thread so you need to be going clockwise facing the engine to loosen it. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

I'm thinking I'm just not strong enough
Will penetrating oil do anything to help now that I'm going in the right direction ?
Any other tips on this
Seem like not so hard once I get the fan off ff

Get a long pipe to put over wrench to get more leverage, penetrating oil will not help and leverage is going to be the key. Let me know how it goes, thanks.

Thanks Dan. Leverage was the key.
The bad pump was bad and there was a lot of play in it. Wound up putting vice grips on the flywheel just to lock it down.
Once it broke loose the rest was pretty easy . Just working on the truck on new years day in the cold was pretty tough .
Thanks for your help .

Good to hear you got it replaced, I live in Minnesota so I know all about working in the cold. Thanks for update.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
