Thanks for all of your suggestions.  I am relieved to report that the
injection pump does NOT need to come off to pull the entire water pump.  But
you need a very low profile 13mm felx socket to reach the last bolt.  After
some encouragement and advice from one of the techs at my FLVWD, I was able
to figure it out.  Whew!!
