ya its tricky, i had that issue too, take your time and try some different wrenches but there is a way to manouver a wrench between the pump and the bracket. just be careful not to round the fitting. it wont be overly tight in the pump.. there is just enough room to break the fitting loose then you can turn it out easily

the size is posted on a page of my thread, ill find it and post it asap. if you just cant get it off, pull the belt off then the pump and remove the line after the pump is loose... thats the easy way...

heres the posts https://www.ranger-forums.com/f82/08...1/index17.html its an 11/16. it may be tight for the wrench to go on if the fitting has any burr or damage. an 18mm would be ok to use also, but i couldnt find one that would fit the space. if you have an 11/16 or 18mm flare nut wrench it may be worth a try,,,

yupp use a wrench that fits the nut on the tensioner for leverage then compress the spring, and remove the belt. then remove the pully then the pump bolts. your fitting will have lots of clearance after that

i doubt it, its probably a sob to get an impact inside where the pump is at. im sure there is some kind of hole in the front that you can stick a screwdriver or something in through the pully and jam into something on the back side so you can get a wrench on it and torque is by hand. or try holding the pully with a pipe wrench.. but dont damage it much
