    I have a 4 yr old ultramount with the new style pump. Vertical style just like the new ones. Well the reservoir is rusted so we went to replace it along with the fluid and cant get the damn thing off. All bolts are off and this thing just wont budge. Any ideas before I beat it off? Aka cause some damage.

    When I pulled mine off I just gave it some gentle love taps back and forth with a rubber mallet til it finally wiggled loose

    Used a rubber mallet .... made a nice dent, then tried a 3' pipe wrenc .... nothing. It does just or is suppose to fall right off once the bolts are undone, correct?

    Should....4 bolts and it should come off with some persuasion.

    Since its pretty much junk now I'd see if I could get a small chisel in there and start going to town on the resevoir. O rings are cheap but take great care not to bur up the manifold.

    If that don't work the sledge hammer.....he is your friend lol.
