Replacing water pump on a 1972 250
I'm the happy new owner of a 1972 250 sedan (114 chassis; 130 engine). I've never owned a Mercedes before, but I wanted to get a 'project' car and I've always liked the looks on these things.
Anyway, it's in pretty good shape overall; however, I decided that I need to replace the water pump.
So far I have the radiator out (never done that before; not too hard). But now I'm having a hard time getting the fan off so that I can get at the water pump itself.
I have the Haynes manual and some funky old 'manual on a CD' that does not go into nearly enough detail. What am I missing? Any clues would be much appreciated.
