    I pulled off the dragging pump and found the impeller was hitting on
    the flat , not the side. Like the impeller wasn't pressed down on the
    shaft far enough, except it only hit for less than half a turn, so it
    must have been out of true.

    Anyway, exchanged the pump, and the new one works fine.

    I was able to do the whole job from the top. I pulled the coolant
    tank, window washer tank, and disconected two coolant hoses and folded
    them out of the way. also pulled the A/C compressor out of the
    mounting brackets and set it out of the way, but left the brackets in

    I almost couldn't get the three bolts off the water pump pulley, but
    then remembered the old trick of wedging a flat bar on the two other
    bolt heads to pull against. Also had to use 6 point sockets (the hex
    heads seem kinda sloppy) and just the right amount of extension to get
    to the pump bolts but still clear the chassis.
