The collar on the pipe has to slip down out of the pump. i had to put some wd-40 on the pipe connection because it was corroded up. then i used some channel locks to work the pipe out of the pump. when reassembeling, make sure pipe is all the way in the pump before shoving the collar back into place.

Top speed is hard on a car, at that age of vehicle worn water pump and old old with buildup a bad thermostat and radiator with scale buildup on inside and debris on the outside creates more heat than released. try replacing the thermostat and water pump and doing an flush of the cooling system with an oil change and see if that helps.
