Meziere HD water pump

Dumb question, is there a trick to removing the electric water pump from the rest of the housing? I didn't originally install it, and I want to get the rest of the housing powder coated. I've already removed the 6 bolts and figured it would pry off but that thing is on there tight.

No,it should come off. O-ring might be seized (plan on replacing. Or,(whomever) may have used RTV instead. Be gentle,but persuasive in tapping on,or prying "ears"....

^^^ this.

Whoever installed it "may" have used RTV (not the way to do it) or the large O ring is just being stubborn.

You will need this seal
