    Default Finally off my dead ass

    Yes it's official , took over a year but got up the nerve to START tearing down the 1994 Buick century wagon and do the head gaskets. Only spent three hours today but this what was done.
    1- pull out the battery
    2-take out air intake rubber hose
    3- unplugged all or most wiring harness
    4- pulled alternator , unbolt P/S pump, drive belt and unbolt the water pump pulley BUT
    I am having a problem with the power steering pump pull up and out ( all three bolts undone ) and popping off the water pump front pulley.

    Take the upper intake manifold off its sandwiched in between the lip of the manifold and the bracket once u take the bolts off . It goes kinda like this pull up and push inward to the intake manifold turn the pump towards the water pump and pull up . It's more the angle but it will come off as it sits more wiggling and adjusting to get it free .

    CenturyMan,

    I went ahead and disconnected the lines to the P/S pump, that made it pretty easy to maneuver it out of the engine bay. Be sure to plug your lines.

    Thanks,
    Ken T.

    I need to put it into the garage has heat but first pull out my WWII dodge truck.
    I have to finish drilling out the bad torx screw, pull intake manifold, valve covers,drop engine pipe and then remove the heads
