I have a 86 gl hatch 1.8L, trying to remove the oil pump. Have removed the 4 10mm bolts, pump rotates slightly but won't give. Am i missing something. Thanks Ray.......

Nope - 4 bolts, rotate and pull. DO NOT pry hard on it. You will break the housing.

Some people have found it neccesary to loosen the block half bolts in the vicinity of the oil pump. I've never had to do this - just rotate back and forth as you pull - sometimes I will pry VERY GENTLY as I rotate. It helps to have the oil filter still attached as a lever for rotating it.

It's just bound up with oil varnish.

give it a lil tappy poo with a dead blow hammer. what ever you do, do NOT stick a screw driver in there and try to pry it out that way. you take a major chance on ************ing up the mating surface and then the pump will never seal up
