If you aren't going to use it very often you may be better off just buying a cheap one. I got a HarborFreight one for $20 and have used it twice with no problems. If you do get one, make sure it will both pull and then push on the pulley, some brands sell them as two seperate tools.
For less than professional use I would get a less expensive puller. Also any pump that I have ever replaced always came with a bolt for pushing on the pulley. A pulley is not at all difficult to pull with a proper tool. The difference between the ease of most tasks for the pro or the shade tree mechanic is the quality of his tools.

I agree. Rent don't buy. It is a tool you'll use once in a blue moon. If ever again. When I changed the pump on the Explorer I "rented" the tool from Pep Boys. I left a deposit and when I returned the tool I got the deposit back = FREE. This policy is not uncommon.

I bought the Lisle tool for $47, it also is an installer. Sure is handy to have... if you have a Lincoln or Taurus type engine, you need it to be able to get the ps pump off if servicing the head gasket or such... the Lisle tool is also universal, will work on Ford, GM, and Chrysler for a minimum. Snap On will likely have it as a Blue Point. If you really want Snap on, here is the page: Snap On puller They make you buy a bunch of pieces to do the same thing the Lisle does for less pieces and price. I bought my set from Northern Auto, northernautoparts.com, for $47, item # is 38850. (link was blocked)
