    The brass inserts that hold those 2 bolts have come lose. They are a weak link for sure. You will have to install an R&D girdle.

    You are going to have to pull it out. Just use a 2X4 then plan on getting a R&D Girdle kit. I would pull straight down if you can. From there you can use good epoxy and reset the inserts in there.

    Do not do ride again without the r&d girdle kit. Your other choice would be to run bolts all the way though the shoe or just replace the entire pump shoe.

    As skoepp said, it can be a pain to remove, and you would need the engine alignment tool.

    so running bolts all way through is best bet?
