I've done two, both times with the radiator removed and even then it was a pain to change the pump. I can't think of a worse task than trying to replace the power steering pump while parked on the side of the road.

Yeah, you got a point there. Let's just say I'd rather not have to do either one on the side of the road!

I pick the waterpump any day or night for a roadside replacement, its only a few bolts and a couple of belts I just don't have all those fancy tools, some people have, like a pulley puller and installer. You also need a 1" socket, if you have to swap the tank

The power steering system on this 350 holds 2 quarts and that just in the tanks and lines.

ok my best roadside was the front brakes on the side of the road on the side of a mountain in colorado when it threw a pad right off (yes I had a set of spares on board )
pretty crazy leveling that baby enough not to roll down hill with the nose up-log chucks and big rocks

Now that sounds scary. Did you happen to take any pictures of that little adventure?
