I know that you want a simple answer but, have you done any troble shooting steps at the pump its self? when the relay is in does it pump at all? what is your lin pressure?

Replace the pump as it does other things than just pump air into the exhaust. I helps in cold starting and keeps the engine from backfiring during deceleration. You can cause the converter to fail also. I have a service manual and it tells you to first loosen the pulley bolts on the pump first then remove the belt and pulley. Remove inlet hose and outlet hose then the mounting bolts .

At the base of the distributor there is a metal bracket with a bolt holding the bracket to the intake manifold. This is the distributor hold down bracket and you will need to loosen the bolt a few turns. A timing light is needed to find the correct timing of the engine, so connect one to the car in proper order. With the clamp loose and the timing light on, start the car and point the timing light at the harmonic balancer where the timing gauge is located on the timing belt cover. The light will show you where the timing is and so adjust the distributor (clockwise or counter-clockwise) until the desired setting is achieved. When the timing is set, turn off the car and tighten up the hold down bolt, be careful not to turn the distributor, and this is how to set the timing.

Hi, the bit is called a Torx Bit or a star bit. Don't get the type for a screwdriver, get the socket that would go on a ratchet, you'll need to put an extension on it of course to get in there. Push hard or it will strip. Give Honda a call and ask them what size it is for your car for sure, might be a 6mm or you can just buy a metric Torx Bit Set. Separately they are $3.99 at Autozone. Not sure how much the kit is. Good luck.
