    /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gifWell, I thought I was just supposed to used a pulley puller. So I did, one of those three jaw thingies with the big bolt through the middle. Well, not only did the pulley puller not pull the pulley, it bent the [censored] out of the pulley before I realized the pulley puller was not pulley pulling properly. Now I need to go to Pick and Pull and prospect me another pulley to pull, with a pulley puller perhaps. But I need to know the proper procedure for pulley pulling so I can pull the pulley properly without damaging the pulley.

    Oh yeah, and how do I put it back on?

    Go to a "good" parts house and they will do it for you. I bought a new pump,and they pressed on the old pulley on the new pump for free. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    You need a puller like this one.pic You can borrow one from Autozone with a $15 or $20 deposit.

    There is a little groove in the pulley near the shaft. Use the second part in the pic to pull it off. Remove the metal sleeve and put the two halves around the puller and the pulley. Then put the sleeve around them so they cant come off. I think you can probably figure it out from here.

    To put it back on use the part on the left(might have to use the other bolt). Screw the long bolt into the pump shaft, be sure to catch plenty of threads. Then tighten the other part down until the pulley is flush with the shaft.

    "

    Perhaps you could peruse the pages of a Chilton's publication for the proper pulley pulling procedure. Possibly procured from a parts purveyor.

    If you rent a puller from Autozone the puller usually has directions with it
