U will have to play with it and move it back and forth and wiggle it at the same time, other than that I have no easy fix.

'90 Volvo 740 2.3l turbo water pump install instructons needed

Go to an auto supply store like PEP boys or Advance Auto, etc., and buy a Haynes Repair Manual for the 740. You may be able to consult one at your local library for free. Even if it doesn't cover your model year, the replacement instructions are pretty much the same for all years. in fact even a 240 Volvo manual would be essentially the same. Pay particular attention to the installation have to slide the pump on, and then rotate it a few degrees clockwise to make the upper o-ring seal. Good luck!
