A lot easier without th emotor mount there. Use a 2x4 to support and jack the engine up. Remove the 3 bolts on the block side of the mount, and then remove the studs. Remove the 2 top bolts on the frame, then from under loosen the two bolts on the side of the frame, no need to remove these. Remove the bolt going threw the rubber part. Lift frame side out, then wiggle block side out. Then have a beer, your going to need it.

Should I be doing this or just swap the pump out while still in the car?

Are you removing the whole timing cover?

The pic that is one page one is only part of the pump assm. I'm trying to remove that as well as the bigger half that the actual pump bolts to. The part behind that bolts to the block. It has the inlet and out supply.

The picture is the wter pump. If you want the part behind it that'* the timing cover. And you better sit down for that. Your going to need to pull the harmonic balancer for that. And yes, the motor mount needs to come all the way off then.

The picture I posted in this thread is the water pump. You do not need to remove the timing cover to change the pump. That picture was taken on the bench to be more clear.
