Can anyone tell me the correct method of removing the pulley from the power steering pump so I can take the pump out of the bracket it's in? I think there is most likely a puller involved. What I need to find out is if that is actually an allen set bolt and if so, which way for sure it is turned to take it out.
This pertains to a '79 F150. It is the correct pump in a wrong bracket that someone before me had placed on a 240 6 cyl. that was in the truck when I obtained it. I am putting a 302 back into it to get the truck back to what it was at one time.
I bought one on ebay for about $15 with freight. It is a master set and will pull about anything power steering or alternater related. The seller messed up on the shipping, and I got tired of waiting and bought the same set at NAPA for about $70. I now have two sets.
I just replaced my power steering pump a couple weeks ago. I got a a pulley puller/press set from Advanced Auto. I know that Auto Zone also had them. It didn't cost me anything, just a deposit that was refunded when I returned the tool set. A pump pulley puller is a pretty standard item, I'm sure any parts store that has a loan-a-tool program would have one in stock. Cost to you: $0.
