This morning, I found a water leak on the water pump housing, (not pump itself), and trying to remove it.
I removed 12 bolts (7 big, 5 small) and successfully took out the pump, but
can't remove the pump housing.
I tried to tap the pump housing with soft-faced mallet without success..
Am I doing something wrong?
Any advice will be welcome!!
Thanks a lot in advance for your comments
I think you mean Front Cover or Timing Cover, which is what the water pump is bolted to on a 3.0L Vulcan. You got quite a bit left to take off. The vibration dampener has to come off, as well as the oil pan bolts that go into the Front Cover.
