You don't mention the car, but if you're going to change the O rings
without removing the pump, a brass punch and hammer will loosen them in
place.  There are some that are impossible to get at with a drag link
socket unless the pump is removed.  The X head that was leaking on V8Q #2
was the least accessible one (of course), only way to do it without pump
removal was to I get under it with an air chisel and blunt head and spin
it out.  

Even with the pump out and a drag link socket, sometimes they're very
tight and you may find that you will still have to give them a few whacks
with a chisel or punch to start them moving.

Hit any key to continue, or any other key to quit.
