I tried to take off the water pump today. I removed the 4 mounting bolts only to not be able to get the pump to come off. I heated the gasket goop or whatever that is still holding it. The stuff just doesn't want to let go.
There are no internal bolts holding the pump is there?

My D2 Serviceman's reference book reads the following on water pump removal (earlier tractors):

"Remove capscrews securing the water pipe to the bottom of the water pump housing.

Take out the capscrews holding the fan and the water pump assembly to the timing gear housing.

Lift the fan and water pump assembly from the timing gear housing."

If a gasket cement and or a silicone sealant has been used instead of a gasket between the pump and the timing gear housing is may well be causing the pump to be held in place. Have you tried applying pressure with a pry bar to break the seal?

I heated the surface and pounded a screwdriver in each side towards the top. It moved only so far and that was it. I soaked it down with kroil and gave up. I realized I should have used gasket solvent or something. Maybe tonight, I'll heat it again and try squirting Gasket Solvent on it again.
I am wondering if it isn't rusted into the body of the cam cover. Somehow?
Thanks!

I just check mine and their only 4 screw on the wather pump that must be rusty inside but it only 1/2 inch shoulder inside you can use fuel or w40 that can help you to free up.

I got the water pump unbolted and wedged out till the fan hit the radiator. I bolted it back on and realized it would spin! The gasket is borderline but didn't leak. Started the pony, pulled in the bendix and engaged the clutch loosened the injecter lines and was disappointed that they all weren't dripping. Water is blowing, chugging out of the radiator the whole time??? I'm guessing rust, not blown head gasket?????
Looking further I see oil pumping out!!!!! Shut the pony out and noticed that the bendix is going to stay engaged?? Bummer!! Looking closely, I find the connectors out of the oil cooler leaking!! Now I am going to cut the lines and reroute them back into the oil filter.
