snapped the drive belt today and found the water pump is not rotating freely

Looking at your build thread, you should have the ability to do the water pump. There is not a lot of room, and it does get a bit fiddly at times, but it is possible to do in the car. You don't need to remove the A/C pump from the car, just unbolt it and tie it back out of the way of what you are doing, also you won't have to recharge the A/C system. Remove the alternator, it gives you a lot more room for not a lot of effort. Remove the radiator and fans, and basically remove any other items that will give you a bit more room, including jacking the car and removing the drivers side wheel and splash guards. A little bit of time creating tore room will make the job a LOT easier.

Good Luck
