Spray heavily with coke(soda) and let sit for 24hrs. It should loosen. Used on naval ships for rusted things and somethng in the coke eats away at the metal.

The water pump won't come off

Hi, It sounds like the pump is froze on the motor shaft. It will take a long flat blade screw driver and pry the pump off. try and wedge the screw driver between the pump sleeve and the motor.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Need to replace water pump in a 1989 buick regal

the water pump is going to be one of the pulleys on the serpintine belt. its going to be the only one that uses the back of the belt(side with no groves) to spin it. take the belt off and undo the three screws on the pulley and pull it out. then put the new pump back in. make sure belt is one right. make sure cooling system is still full. and you should be good to go.

How do i replace the belt

There are four bolts holding the motor to the chassis. Remove the four bolts, slide you hand back along the belt and released the belt from the transmission pulley. Once this is done, turn the motor and pump upside down and you will see the three star screws that hold the pump on. Remove the screws and slide the pump off. If the pump is stuck you will have no choice but to break the pump off and replace it.

Steps for Replacing the Belt

Tools needed:
Nut driver or socket set.
Torex screw driver.

1. Unplug the power cord from the
electric socket and remove the
front panel.
2. Disconnect the power coupling
from the motor.
3. Disconnect the 2 hoses from the
pump. Be aware that the pump
still contains between 1 and
2 cups of water, and it WILL
all come out.
4. Remove the belt from the idler
arm, pushing the belt UNDER the
idler arm. Yes, your hands will
now be quite greasy.
5. Remove the belt from the main
transmission by pushing the belt
under the transmission pulley.
6. Remove the 4 bolts that hold the
motor assembly to the washing
machine body. Remove the motor
assembly with belt from the
washing machine.
7. Turn the motor upside-down. With
the torex screwdriver, remove the
3 bolts that hold the pump to the
motor. Remove the pump from the
motor (in my case, the motor shaft
fit into a slot in the pump; while
it was snug, it was not melted or
rusted, and did just come out).
8. Clean pump and motor as desired.
9. Install new belt and reverse the
steps to re-install.
