Best tool for removing rear ballast pumps?

Recommended Posts

Looking for a tool to make it easier to remove the rear ballast pumps next to the vdrive. I’ve taken it out before with a crescent wrench but it was a bit too long. 

Other than cutting the wrench in half does anyone have any recommendations? I’m not replacing pump just need to get to my shaft packing to tighten more.

Just went through this this weekend. Couldn't get a single tool on there. 
I removed the wire, and the hose, but left the motor in the housing, and squeezed and turned as hard as I could. Took 3-4 BIG tries but finally got it to turn. 

Reason I'm saying I left the motor in is because I tired with it out and it just flexed the plastic housing.

I’ve taken it out before with a longer wrench but just looking for something smaller. May just have to cut one in half...
