well if the manual says that then dop that. i dont think you would need to do that unless you cant get the pump out.

It helps if you put what car but seeing as EA-AU motors are similar we can just assume..

Dont get things like pumps off ebay but just soend the money on a brand new on from repco or ford.

sorry its on a EL 4.0l

and just because the manual says to remove the balancer i wont if i dont have to - i hate unnecessary work and it looks like it will come off without removing this but if it does need to come off i will need a puller and that was my point in asking so i would have the necessary tools to complete the job

No, you don't have to remove the Harmonic balancer to remove the water pump. Just remove the belt/s and the P/S pump, don't remove the hoses from the P/S pump, just let it hang at the back, near the exh manifold. then take off your W/pump. Piece of p**s.

When putting the water pump back on, make sure you put some vaseline on the o ring that goes in the back on the water pipe. this will make it much easier to get to seal right. have fun!
