I have replaced two of the Northstar water pumps.

Each time, I have had to use a 1/2" breaker bar with 24" of cheater pipe to break them loose.

Rotate clockwise to remove.

Be careful when it pops loose it is quick.

Clean the O-ring recess very carefully; I used a slim screwdriver then followed with a small brass brush for the general area.

I also wiped the O-ring with a little dielectric grease, so the pump would easily tighten back in place.
