    Agreed - that's got to be easier? It's 2 bolts...

    tbh seeing as yours hasn't run for as long as I have known you its prob in need of a re-gas anyway... I would be tempted to do it that way myself...

    There isn't much room from memory to get to the clutch anyway and no guaranty it will work once you have swapped the clutch over... if the other pump is a known good un I would just swap it and be done tbh... get it re-gassed and enjoy the icy goodness...
