Its not bad, we pulled the power steering pump off the vac pump instead of pulling them both in one unit, seemed to work good.

We did have a hell of a time getting the new pump to prime, maybe someone has a trick for that, I dont know.

Try disconnecting the line at the box until fluid comes out. Seal it back up, fill the res and try again.

thats the way you remove it you use a wrench if you have a ratchet wrench it will make your job easier
and as far as priming it you turn the wheel all the way to one side and then visa versa it will prime and get air free

Yes, those bolts are a bitch, but not impossible.

One more note, the drive stub shaft for the PS pump is the VAC pumps sealing diameter, LUBE the shaft before putting it together, if you tear that VAC pump seal you'll be taking it off too.
