1997 Z71 Power Steering Pump Removal

I've got a '97 Chevy K1500 with a bad power steering pump. I've removed both lines, the pulley, and the mounting bolts that both Chilton's & Haynes agree need to be removed. I still can't get the thing out. Are the two manuals leaving something out, or is there a trick to removing the pump?

Many thanks.

Have you had a look at the online Chilton book (autolibrary) below to see if they have something?

I have. They have the same instructions as my printed Chilton's, verbatim. Under the hhod, it looks like I need to remove a lot more than the book indicates, but I'm hoping that's not the case.

The link below is leads to the Genuine GM service procedure for your project. See if it's any better than the info you've been using.

Knuckles, how/where do you get that information?

I suspect it is a Mitchell subscription? I have a cool GM Service Manual link here at work, pretty cool stuff .

I get GM info direct from GM.

I have a legit username & password for use at work. I've seen other (functional) usernames & passwords posted all over the internet.

Is it legal? How can you get that information?

You can e-mail me if you want to on this. I'm just curious.

It's legal for me as I have a legit username & password that my employer pays for. I suppose GM would frown on someone using a username & password they 'found' online.

We also get the same info, in the same format, on CD-ROM. E-mail me if you want more info.

Is the pump loose at all, since removing the pully and mounting bolts or does the pump still feel like it's bolted tight? There is a bracket on the back side of the pump, that is also bolted to the exhaust manifold stud..

Knuckles,

Thanks for the help. That info helped me to poke my head in a couple of other places. It turned out to be the mounting stud on the exhaust manifold that I was missing (as another poster suggested). Anyhow, I appreciate everyone's help.
