I'm trying to figure out what, besides the pump itself, has to come out. The radiator? The A/C pump? The ginormous bracket that holds the A/C pump, the tensioner puller and the sttering pump itself? Anything? Is there a how-to anywhere? If anyone has any experience with this, I'd love to pick your brain.

Okay, Iíll respond to my own post

To remove the pump I first removed the steering gearbox (which I was replacing anyway - but I donít think it strictly needed to be done for a successful pump removal). I then removed the 4 bolts that held in the air conditioning compressor and pushed it aft, creating enough room (just barely) to remove the pump topside. I even left the high and low pressure hoses attached. Hope this helps someone in the future.

Good going on your DIY replacement---it would seem you're the first one to do this on that chassis and engine combo.

And this will probably help someone in the future----never know. I've sent reps your way for a decent contribution.

Thanks!
