Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist
the only way to get to the 3 bolts is to remove the pulley. you can rent a puller from a parts store and remove it. then the 3 bolts are right there and it is easily removed for access to the pump
no, it is pressed onto the shaft and you cannot access the bolts with the pulley installed
thats because it is the only way to do it. there is no short cut as you would like.
sorry, there is no trick to this one. I have been doing it for over 50 years myself and my first was a 58 ford.
wish I could have given you a trick but that pump cant come off unless the pulley comes off
