Replacing the water pump on my '83 El Camino 305 and have hit a stumbling block. The lower bolt on the right (driver) side of the pump is blocked by an adjustment slot on the steering pump bracket. I've loosened the pivot bolt, the aforementioned slot bolt and a bolt that allows adjustment on the air condition pump bracket. The steering pump will not budge - what am I missing? Do I have to remove it to get to the water pump bolt?

Any reason not to pull the PS pump off entirely?

After applying some pressure with a #2 crowbar, was able to get a socket on the offending bolt. I had all? bolts remove from the steering pump but no lateral movement - something in the upper right rear was hanging on. Thanks for the responses.

There is a hidden stud on the middle back of the pump, real hard to see and get to.:texas:
