All the nuts and bolts are removed and I stlll can't lift it out. Have the gear puller and need to know when it comes in to play. Also would like to know where I can down load an exploded drawing or picture of the unit. Any additional info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bil

email update

I'm not rebuilding the pump, just replacing it. Could use pics of removal, puller usage, etc. Just like the text is referring to. Don't know what the point thing is about, so I don't know if you get my other replies.
Do you
have the same problem?

I do not have any diagrams of the actual pulley in use i'm afraid. The outside legs of pulley remover go around the pulley. Locate centre bolt onto pump centre shaft, turn centre bolt of puller clockwise with a wrench to push down on pump shaft drawing the pulley off the pump shaft

Install Pulley Remover (J-25034-B) on pulley. While holding remover body with wrench, turn center bolt clockwise to draw pulley off shaft.
