How do remove pump pulley?

Hey guys,
I need help again. I am putting power steering on my 55 2nd Chevy pick up. I received the power steering brackets today and am now trying to remove the original brackets. One of the bolts is behind the pulley and the pulley has to come off. The shaft of the pump has a allen head. There is no nut on the end. The pump comes off a 1974 Chevy

I did a search and didn't find out how to remove this type of pulley. Looks like it screws on?

The pulley presses on. You will need a puller to remove it. It installs back on using a bolt and washer. Basically, removing it anyother way, will destroy the pump and pulley.

I'll add a few things...

1) You can get loaner tools from many auto parts stores or just bring it in and do it there. They do that kind of stuff all the time.

2) Add a nut to the bolt and washer to install the pulley. Just like when you put on a harmonic damper on the front of the engine you don't want to use just a bolt to pull it on. Get a long all thread bolt and run the nut all the way onto it. Then put the washer onto the bolt and thread the bolt into the shaft. Then hold the bolt and turn the nut to press on the pulley. That way you won't strip out the threads on the shaft

Are you using a short or long water pump?
I have a short water pump and that is the pulley I found that would work after converting to the newer pressed on p/s pump.

Actually.... Most pullers come with a special bolt, washer, nut, and bearing, to install the pulley. The bearing makes installation much easier. Having someone at the parts store do it does even better than that. LOL

You can rent the tool kit in the picture below at Autozone. If I remember correctly, it is like $30 and is refunded upon return. You will need this to do it correctly and not damage the pulley and/or pump shaft. Ed

Got it done

Thanks guys for the help. I went to Kragens and rented the tool for $46 with full refund upon return. The pulley came right off, I got the bolt removed and put the pulley back on.
