Ok. After posting pics of my "weird looking" power steering pump last week, and everyone telling me that it was wrong for my car, I bought a new one today.

I have never changed a power steering pump before, and the new one doesn't come with the pulley on it.
Sooooo how do I get the old pulley off and installed on the new one? It came with a "pulley installation kit" that looks to be a bolt of some sort and a thick washer. I have not had time to read about it, so I thought I would ask for advice here.

Thanks guys and gals...

Contact auto parts stories in the area. For $5-10, they will swap the pulley. The swap takes about 5 minutes.

With my 351W swap, I had to use a different ps pump. And it of course didn't come with a pulley. I went to the local Kragen, and they don't rent tools. But, I left a deposit and when i returned the puller, I got the entire deposit back. So, it didn't cost a thing to pull 'er off.

I bought a rebuilt pump for my son's car at Auto Zone, they swapped the pulley for free. All auto parts places vary, this one in Huntington Beach is staffed by friendly smart Old Farts. I sent a letter of thanks to the company naming names of the guys who helped me, insisting that they get some recognition.
