Water Pump Endt 673

I am trying to remove the water pump on my B753. I have removed the 8 5/16" bolts on the face, but it will not come off the housing. What am I missing? I have hit it with a hammer but it still refuses to come apart. It can't be just the gasket holding it on.

Old gasket shellac on gaskets is damned hard to get apart when it is several years old.

I have removed the oil cooler bolts (2). This pump is stuck real good to the housing. I have hit it hard with a deadblow hammer and nothing. If I hit it any harder I will end up breaking the water pump. I am soaking the flange with penetrating oil now, maybe that will loosen the flange from the housing.

If experienced, an oxy/acetylene torch will help to loosen the gasket around the perimeter holes where the bolts were. You can use a propane torch if uncomforable with oxy/acetylene, but is much slower.
