Were the hex bolts difficult to remove? If so, what did you do remove them. Ive bought a raw water pump for my 97 Prostar but having a very difficult time removing those three hex bolts holding it in place. Stopped for now not wanting to strip the heads.

Mine came out pretty easy. Don't remember the size of the hex head it took but came right out. Was easier to get at them when I took the mounting bracket off. Maybe try some PB Blaster?

If you take the mounting bracket off as T-Rex mentioned, you will be able to rotate the pump to get easier access to the bolts. I used a hex head attachment on the end of a 1/4 drive 4 inch extension and ratchet.

On the Ford engines, there is a somewhat concealed machine screw in the bottom of the bracket. Took me a little while to find it several pumps ago...

You may very well know this or the LT-1 may be different...just saying...
