Take a pry bar to it. We had to put some muscle into getting Doc's off.

:yes :yes, if you ever do find any w/o legs let me know where you got them from. Looked into a stewart one for your new build?

I had problems taking my pump off, im too late to help, but for the future, if you let your car sit for a long time, so it all cools down it comes off fairly easy.

oh, my bad. Have you tried hitting it to try to turn it some? I actually broke a piece off of the stock water pump trying to get it off, it wouldn't come off and after letting it sit, it just pulled off effortlessly.
