Behind the power steering pump down low there is a adjusting bolt. Also on the front of the pump is the other bolt. Be gentle when moving pump. Dont pry real hard on it.

I see two bolts on the front of the pump but they are behind the pulley I dont think I can get the pulley off are those the bolts? Or are they the blots that attach to the arm that goes to the alternator?

Yes it looks like that the #3 bolts have to come out? They are behind the pulley and the rear ajd brackett is hard to make out still looking for that in the motor do you have to remove the bolts from the rear brackett and front brackett?
