Question Power Steering Pump "pulley removal"???

Hello,

I've got an early 70's late 60's style GM Saginaw power steering pump.
How do you remove the pulley? it appears to be a press fit, no keyway.
3-jaw puller, or is there a special tool?

Then, how do you re-install a press fit pulley?

Might be a silly question to some, but I've never messed with one before

It does take a special tool to remove, and a differnt one to install. The tool may be rented from Autozone. The install tool usually comes with a new pump, but is nothing more than a long bolt with large washers.

A special puller is need to remove the pulley. Most shops have one, and will remove it for a small fee (you could try a Autozone, NAPA or a Discount Auto). To install the pulley, a 3/8"-16 stud , body washer and a nut will usually work to press on the pulley. Never try to "beat" the pulley on or internal damage will occur.

I had to replace the power steering pump not too long ago on my 90 full size Chevy. I bought the pump from Auto Zone and they switched the pulleys out for free right there on the counter.

Power Steering Pump Puller/Installer

Autozone rents them for free. And my my local shop did even without a purchase.
It was a $40 (plus tax) deposit and was totally refunded.

Click on the the picture to enlarge:

The parts on the ground are the pieces I used to
remove and reinstall my the pulley on my 94' Suburban.
I believe yours will be similar.

To reinstall, you thread a piece inside the snout and then a
nut forces it on while a roller bearing smooths things out.

Good luck, Ed www.edgesz28.com

Did You Know?

That installer bolt that comes with the new pump is junk. Half of the time it will turn to mush before you get the pully fully seated. Rent the right tools to do the job right. You will also probably need a solidly mounted vice to get it done.
