noresull, is there enough room to install it without jacking the motor? seems very tight in there. is there a trick to it.

You need to support the engine, remove the entire motor mount and either raise or lower the engine to get the pump in and out.

what about the other motor mounts?

Put a jack with a chunk of wood on it under the oil pan. Unbolt the front motor mount only, unbolt the 2 nuts from the engine and the 3 from the body then lift the mount out of the way. Loosen the pulley bolts, remove the belt, remove the pulley bolts and pulley, raise or lower the motor as needed to allow removal of the pulley. Unbolt the small bolts from around the pump, again raise or lower the motor to neccesitate the removal.

Install is reverse of removal.


Oh yeah, I would never use any stop leak.
