For the archives.
3 bolts, one behind the distributer, one "round the corner" adjacent
to the exhaust manifold, one countersunk bolt, hidden behind the power
Power steering pump fixed by two studs at the top and an bolt on a
swinging bracket at the bottom (which allows belt tension to be
adjusted). To remove pump this whole bracket has to come off, which is
attached by 4 bolts which also hold the water pump together. Two of
these are approx 3 - 4" long, and go right through water pump (and
possibly front casing) into engine block. Very easy to snap these (ask
how I know!0. Anyway, not leaking yet......
