Is anyone around the boards here familiar with the 1986 Pontiac Parisienne?
A family member has one and today the water pump started pouring coolant. So, I volunteered to replace it....bad mistake (apparently)
I cannot seem to figure out how to get the belts off so that I can remove the water pump. It doesn't have the standard tensioner(s) that I am accustomed to and it seems without taking half the flippin' car apart there is no other way. Before I did that, I figured I would post this here and at the pontiac forums in hopes that someone, somewhere is familiar with this type of set up and knows how these frikkin' things come off.
Please help....thanks in advance (if anyone can help)
It is an 86 Parisienne...307, VIN type Y.
