Water pump removal, the tool that everyone has does not fit on the water pump to remove it

Is this a Northstar? The tool fits, however there is a cheap version and an expensive version.Sometimes these pumps are stuck in their housing quite tightly, and only the stouter , more expensive (around 130 dollars ) version will remove them. I've had very good luck with my 35 dollar socket. Sometimes you need to gently tap on the back with a hammer to loosen it up. You also need to use a long ratchet or breaker bar ( at least 18') for leverage. I don't mean to sound condesending, but make sure you are putting the tool in the correct place, and make sure you're turning it the right way. Good luck , and contact me if you need more help.
