Well, I went and rented the tool... POS !!!! It had nothing to do with this water pump in any way possible? So I resorted to a screw in the pully with a screwdriver to brace it, then some huge vice grips on the nut and it worked, cant complain other than it could have been a hell of alot easier, i wont do it again...thats for sure. Cleaned up the pump, cleaned off the old gasket and sealer, used a wire wheel on a dremel to clean up the mating surfaces really good, New gasket and sealer...Done Found out my lower hose is bad as well as the serpentine belt so getting them in the morning
enjoy the pics.
