    i'm currently in the middle of taking apart my water pump, your instructable isn't exactly descriptive but it is literally the first thing on google on how to do this. how did you get the pulley off the water pump, did you need to pry it off or something like that? my car is old and it seems like the pulley is seized to the pump so any advice would be great.
