92 Olds 88 water pump bolts
I'm having some trouble with the long water pump bolts on my 88. All but one came out without much convincing. The last one is stuck inside the pump -- I got it out about halfway, but there are threads on the second half that I can't seem to get threaded to undo.
I've tried ratcheting on it (it turns fine) while pulling on it (otherwise it gets pushed in bc of the smooth part in the middle), but no dice. Not sure what else to try or what the problem is. Ideas?
Sorry for the blurry pic of the offending bolt ... the second pic is the other bolts I got out already so you can see what I mean about the threads. Pretty gross lookin.
