I am searching for a pump now. I am trying locally (So Cal area) first, if no luck then I'll try Jeffsr's friend Dave atAtlanta-Stuttgart.
As far as the belts being over tightened, I have never adjusted them since I bought the car. They had approximately 3/8 inch deflection, which I felt was OK. What amount of deflection should they have? I ask so I can adjust properly once I have a replacement pump.
I'll be working on getting the old one out this evening, if nothing else needs my attention.
Thanks for all the replies and advice.
