Generac Pressure Washer Pump R&R

I took my Generac pressure washer (PW) to my local authorized Generac service center, and the mechanic said the pump is "about shot". He cleaned the pump out and replaced the oil to give it a little more working life. I'd like to replace the pump myself with one from Northern Equipment. I can't remove the pump from the PW because the bolts that secure the pump are allen head bolts that can't be accessed with the normal "L" shaped wrench -- not enough clearance. Can you recommend a supplier who would carry a tool for this tight situation? No luck at Sears, surprisingly enough.
Many Thanks,
Mike Dransfield

Mike:

You could easily make the tool with a small vice and a hacksaw by cutting the allen wrench to an appropriate length.

Have done it many times.
