w114 power steering help!

I am trying to remove the power steering pump from a 1971 250 so I can install the new pump on my 1973 280c. The pump is the same, just the mounting bracket is different.

My question is how to do I remove the hold down bolt in front of the pulley? Any ideas?

Also, which direction do I turn to loosen the bolt? (assuming I am facing the pump as it sits in the car)

You remove the bolt on the front of the PS Pump pulley, then you use a special mercedes pulley puller tool to remove the pulley, then you can get to the bolts to remove the pump from the bracket. To remove the nut you need to cause the pulley to not turn which you can possibly do by putting enough tension on the belt to old the pulley in place.
