After you get the bolts out of the pump to case. Look into the bolt holes and you will see that the pump has threads in two holes. 3/8 course. Take a couple of 3/8 bolts about 2" long and use them in a couple of different ways.

Get a piece of chain with links large enuff to get a 3/8 bolt thru. Install bolts thru chain into the pump housing. Leave enuff chain hanging that you can get a pry bar (or 2x4 lumber) between the chain and the bell housing. Pry the pump forward. Or use a 5 lb. hammer and wrap the chain around the end and use the hammer as a slide hammer. A couple of hard pulls and the pump will come out.

You will see a large O-ring. Also a paper gasket. Crap gets into the case and locks up the case to pump clearance. That is what makes removal difficult.

Or do what I do.

Remove the valve body and then use a screw driver to pry the pump out.
