I think you need the claw version pulled for what you're trying to do?

The one you have is correct. I just used the same one to replace my water pump a couple weeks ago.

you dont need to pull the pulley off to change the water pump. just unbolt the whole alternator/power steering bracket and lean it out of the way.

I put mine back on with a hammer. No one may want to take advice from me after reading this post. But it worked great.

BTW Two wrenches and a monkey or a contortionist

That looks like the power steering pulley to me the water pump one should unbolt with 4 bolts and just about fall off.
