On the 104 engine, the use of Snap On number FLX13 will help alot. It is a flex, universal joint with a 1/4" shaft that will get at the water pump bolts with not nearly as much accessory dismantling. I think I paid less than $30 for mine, but that was probably 10 or 12 years ago now. Even if it were $50, I would pay the money to keep from having to do so much field stripping.

The thin shaft on the tool will make you think you are going to twist it in half before the bolt comes loose, but just keep torquing on it. It won't break.

Hope this helps,
