    Certain it needs a pump? Remove the exhaust manifold, you will find it then! It's shaft driven, no belt. Not that hard to replace, 'IF' handy with a wrench and a little car savvy. If you plan to do the swap, don't forget the Blaster penetrating spray for the manifold bolts. If you don't understand this have a mechanic do the work!!! IF it indeed needs the pump replaced to start with!

    Look, if you can't find the exhaust manifold then you have no reason to continue! Get some professional help before you mess up more than you or anybody else can fix! I am sorry but that is just how it is! Good luck with it and have a nice day.
