Head to the parts store and rent the special tool to get the pulley off. The bolts; bigger wrench?, plasma torch?, more beer???

Isn't the pulley held onto the water pump by 3 13mm bolts?
There then should be 4 13mm bolts holding the water pump to the block. It may be easier to gain access by removing the alternator, and set it aside until the new pump is installed.

I agree with MsArgent. Also, check autolibrary.org below for some R&R reference instructions.
