Goldsburg: No camera, Just to cheap , will see if I can get a picture when the sisinlaw comes by.

I had a an old bracket from a lawn mower, close to the shape needed and it had a square hole for a breaker bar,. used 3/8 bolts for making spanner to fit holes on pump flange.

If you have a piece of bar stock ( Approx) 18 x 3/4 x 1/3 you can fab one with
a 3/8 tap and a torch to bend it. ( may not need to bend it if you remove enough stuff)

The holes in the pump flange are 3/8 , and are 2.168 inches center to center.
Drill and tap holes for 3/8 bolts, use bolts with an unthreaded shoulder.
, screw in tight and cut off heads of bolts so about .400-.500 is sticking out
( this goes into flange holes ) also cut off excess threaded part, flush.

you will have to grind a 'crecent' shape' into bar stock between bolts, so tool clears
pump body, if bolts not quite lined up, you may have to file oval shape to get into holes, also heat and bend bar stock to lever is vertical when installed.

I had to remove the return line hose on top of pump to get my breaker bar in,
also removed fuel shut off solenoid for clearence.
And the intake plenum, and moved the AC unit forward,
pluss some plugs.
Used a long 15 mm wrench ( expensive kind ) for driver side nut,
'S' wrench and 'moon' wrench' for ouher 2 nuts.

once I decided to do it and remove things it turned out to be a 1/2 hour job.

Hope this helps, If I find some bar stock, i'll try to make up another and send if you still want it, or lend you mine..

qwestqaz -

Thanks for the offer of a wrench, but you don't need to go to that trouble as you have given me the info that I need to make one! I have access to all types of machining and fabricating equipment, so it would be NO problem (now). The info that you gave me was the piece that I was missing, as getting "down in there" to measure the hole spacing and diameter was the biggest issue!

Thanks again...

Gary
