Water Pump.

Can anyone tell me what is the best way to remove the brass sleeve from the water pump without damaging the aluminum housing?
I have the one with the 4 bolt cover.

Hi Rick, I'm not the most experienced mechanic but I just used a bushing removal tool. It came as a set with various size removers that fit onto the end of a steel rod. I just had to tap it out with a hammer. The tool can be used to seat the new bushing as well, although an arbor press might be better to avoid damaging the new bushing. Good luck-Jim
