iirc it just unbolts. You might as well tear/cut/rip the dang thing out and replace with a 6637 filter...those old air boxes are not that great.

I ended up breaking some of those mounting points when I switched to 6637s on our trucks. But I'm confused as to why you need to do anything with the airbox in order to remove the vac pump.

Why didn't you just buy a vac pump with the pulley already installed??

When i replaced the one on my black truck a pump with the pulley already installed was cheaper than without.

go inside and take a deep breath and stop thinking about it for a while. once you cool down go out and try again. that normally makes things go a little smoother for me

I am down two margaritas at this point, sure me four real quick.

I have never had an issue reinstalling a pully with the installer tool but, this damn thing is serious killing me.
I get a few turns on the nut before the drive screw turns back out.

I just know i am doing something wrong, and now i will need to drive my wife's Acura all next week. I hate being that low to the ground.
