Default Vacuum pump removal -done

I did remove my vacuum pump.
The job was not that big. total time to get it off: about 1 hour.

This was the before picture of my engine starboard side.

Had to build this removal tool first. Sears tools for $7.00 bent using MAP gas for about 4 minutes. Easy.

Purchased cover plate from Aircraft Specialities Inc (thanks to AZ GILA for suggestion) . Cost $ 45.00 with gaskets (x2)purchased 2; because if 1 is good 2 is better.

These came off.
Savings in weight = 5 pounds, 12 oz.

If anyone is interested in purchasing these removed items , PM me
