I have 289 with PS. My fuel pump began leaking recently from the body of the pump and seems to be contaminating the engine oil, so I decided to replace it. I can easily access one of the bolts to the block; however, I cannot effectively access the second bolt. I can get a box wrench around the bolt, but the PS pump bracket prevents me from loosening the second bolt. Disappointingly, I can't get at it from under the car either.
Is there a special flexible socket available (from Sears?) that will allow me to remove the bolt without removing the PS mounting bracket? I would like to avoid removing the PS bracket if possible. If the PS mounting bracket needs to be removed, any suggestions on freeing painted bolts?
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
