    I would probably just go to the wrecking yard and get a whole new pump and pully. That is probably your best bet. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Why not just rent the pulley puller? Can you get what's left of that punch out?

    If not, grind it off flush or close to flush and use a power steering pulley puller, available at your local auto parts store, to get it out.

    I see the missing lip now. Nevermind what I said then. Go to the parts store and buy a new pulley.

    It looks like you tried to use a two-jaw puller instead of a power steering pulley remover. The correct puller pulls on the entire circumference of the lip, not just in a couple of spots. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif If you can rent or borrow the correct puller you might still be able to get the pulley off.

    Hmm, the third pic just loaded for me. It looks like the pulley is bent. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif If so, just toss it and find another one. If it doesn't toss/trash belts, the vibration is likely to kill the new pump. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    A new pulley is like $20 and a lifetime warranty pump $50 and a lifetime warranty hose another $20. Too cheap for junkyard parts IMO. If you want to do that to your truck, that's fine, they'd probably get 20-30 for a pump at the yard though.
