Default Water pump and pulley

OK.. seems like the water pump is going.. there'* a dribbling on the water pump pulley and see signs of anti-freeze spraying everywhere. So how hard is it to get it out on the Bonnie?? Next question is I have to replace the bearings on 2 more other pulley.. and one of them happened to be where the freaking motor mount is blocking the screws How hard would it be to get that out?? Is it part of something else?? Looking at it. it seems like the whole engine mount has to come out and one of the bolts are behind the steering pump pulley.. which is going to be a pain tryin to figure out how to remove it.. HELP !!!

With the amount of $$ spent into just parts I can't afford a service manual
I wish I did so I don't have to be such a post *****..

However.. my birthday is coming up.. I wonder is someone going to get me the 97 service manual on CD ???

well one way you can do the pulleys is ...pull the tire/wheel off undo the front and back k-frame bolts ..undo the strut nuts from in the engine bay..you`ll have to undo the motor mount on that side too...lower it down ...and looky you can get at the complete engine from that side ...its easy trust me a simple in shop/driveway job

I did the idler and the water pump at the same time. Getting the mount bracket off takes some time, but the good news is once it'* out of the way the idler and the water pump are a piece of cake. I did it all in about 2 1/2 hours.
Let me know if you want the description from the manual. I'll scan it for you.
