    As far as I know yes. You need the back of the plate to drop 1-3 inches to get the housing out.

    He is correct. I just did it and had to loosen the plate or else it would not come off.

    Yes, you need about 1" clearance at the back
    only takes a minute to losen the 4 bolts, just dont silicon your plate or fill the holes...

    dropping the rideplate makes it alot easier. on mine the r&d logo on the rideplate hits the bottom of the pump.

    with a oem/stock rideplate the pump comes right out without removing or loosing the rideplate bolts.

    If it's stock, comes straight out, every time.
    Fill the rideplate holes after you have shimmed it to how you want it. Then fill with a hard putty. Silastic/silicon is too soft and will come out.
    Hope this helps.

    My error, I didn't think anyone would still be using a stock plate on a SHO.
