I am replacing the water pump on a newly purchased '98 pathy. I am fully aware of the problems and I am going to replace all drive belts and spark plugs also. I am stuck trying to get the fan off of the water pump. All of the belts and tensioners are off but I can't get the fan off. I already damaged the outer wall on the harmonic balancer. A small piece broke off when I tried to pry off the fan. Any suggestions? No one else seems to have had the same trouble with this. Also there appears to be studs on the old pump pulley but my new pump did not come with the studs on. Is this normal?
