Don't destroy yourself here. Take of the serpentine belt, remove the twin idler pulley bracket the raw water pump shares with the idler bracket. Undo the hoses to the pump and pull the whole pump and bracket out. Check the pump and repair and replace impellers as neccessary and then re-install. This is usually the best way to do this job.

I with you Baddogg...I need the same guy! I have a 29 Baja Outlaw and the port side isn't to bad...but there is going to have to be some serious bending and flexing going on to get to the starboard engine. Let me know if you find a really small mechanic for the job!
