    They make a special tool for it and NAPA has one. Make sure you change the seal before you put the pulley on. It is no easy job.

    Like to go sloppin' 'round in da mud in a rapid fashion....=) [​IMG]

    I just asked that same question to Boss about 15 minutes ago for a guy. So in the words of "Boss"[​IMG]:

    Yes, it's simple. You'll need a "pulley puller". Don't use a puller with 2 jaws or 3 jaws (or any jaw), b/c that will mess up the pulley. The pulley puller can be purchased at an auto parts store for like $20 to $50 depending. Or rented for cheap. Or can be bought at Harbor freight for cheap. Make sure when you get the "pulley puller" that it comes with the "pulley installer" B/c you'll need that to put it back on. You can rig your own "installer", but we won't go into that mess. I tried and broke and bent 3 grade 5 screws, so then purchased the whole puller/installer kit and worked easier.

    What you do is thread in the screw (that comes with the pulley puller kit) and then put over these two "half circle" type peices from the kit. Screw it down and that pulles the pulley off. Then you're coasting. Then when installing, you take a large washer piece (from the kit) and a different screw (from the kit) and screw it down till the pulley is flush with the pump. Good luck :)

    Power steering Pulley Puller.........now say that 10 times fast! [​IMG]

    Anyways, as stated above the pulley puller/installer kits are worth the $$ or you can see if you can rent/borrow one from one of the auto parts chain stores.
