w114.023 new v-belt install; power steering pump will not budge
I am in the process of renewing all the belts on my w114.023 250c Coupe. I have figured out the alternator and idle pulley but for the life of me I can not figure out how to get the power steering pump loose to get the belt on.
I have been reading and searching and even just looking at it it appears obvious. Two (2) 17mm nuts and an adjustment threaded rod with two nuts. I have loosened all of those and it it still stuck in place at the farthest location (where you max out on tension; away from the crank pully).
The Haynes manual I have is zero help. Am I missing a bolt or two? When I tried to rock it by hand it was completely solid and the whole car moved. I tried to tap it with a hammer and leverage it with a pry bare (gently) and it's not going any where.
Suggestions would be much appreciated.
