I figured it out. You gotta rent or buy a "pulley" to remove the drive belt wheel right in front of the Power Steering reservoir intstead of that whole thing. There are two more bolts you have to remove in order to remove and replace the water pump which you can't get to unless you remove that drive belt wheel. Once you do that you're almost home free. I did figure out that "while I was down there" I might as well replace the clamps on all my water pump hoses. Justa tip to any out there who didn't already know.
