Peter, there is no doubt that working on any part of the front of these engines is a royal pain. As "cool" as the front of the airstream motorhome looks it sure would have been nice if somehow the idea of making it easier for general maintenance activities could have been built into the design.
I haven't had to replace a ps pump yet and with luck I won't have to for a long time. I haven't had the luxury of finding out but I'm betting replacing ps pumps and alternators etc would go alot faster with two people doing the job, one above and one below. I can tell you right now I'd want to be the one above
