grrr. today i decided to finally replace my powersteering pump since it was getting to where i was having a helluva time steering when i wasn't moving. so i bought a replacement, one of the ones which doesn't come with the resevoir. so, i pull out my pump, no big deal. i'm trying to get the pump out, and it's not working. i try and get the pulley off and i ruin the pulley. crap, so i'm starting to get frustrated. my half hour project has turned into about an hour and a half (with running to the parts store and buying a crappy puller tool, then getting pissed b/c it was a piece so i had to go get another.) so, i find a pump and pulley in the area, drive out to BFE to buy it, then get treated like crap from the a-hole counter guy. Drive over to the ware house after paying to pick it up, finally get back to my place to put it all together. then, as i'm installing the pulley on the new pump, the bolt and nut they provide for installing the press-fit pulley has a problem and binds up. fortunately i had another bolt which i was able to rig up to work with the use of a long socket as a washer and a few chain links, so i spend a good half hour getting the damn pulley on. great, it's on, just put it in the rig and be done with it, right? no, the freaking threads on the pulley which the hydroboost brake line screws into are messed up so i couldn't even install the POS! what a waste of an afternoon. ofcourse it was too late to have anything done with it too, go figure. so now i'm out of a vehicle till i can get the right part in, and i don't think they have anymore in the ware house. i don't want to risk ruining the pulley, so i'm goign to ask them to give me a new pulley for the trouble. we'll see what happens. i hate parts stores - i'm rarely ever properly taken care of at a parts store and the people are either dumb or aholes.
