    Anyone have any ideas on how to get the western pump motor off after the two bolts are removed? Motor does not budge and I don't want to damage anything

    Thanks :(:(

    it's prolly just some corrosion between the motor and the housing. some light tapping and prying should get it.

    Tap it firmly but not hard with a rubber faced hammer around the entire motor. you may have to use a small prybar.
