you have to take the pulley off. then loosen the pump. its not too hard.
I also agree about doing it right. If there is one thing I learned never skimp on steering or brakes, you are a fool to do so. I have blown steering lines, which sucks fluid goes everywhere and you more than likely will need a new pump afterwards. Same with the steering shaft. Those suck when they break as you are driving. Ive had it happen twice.
The LP side is easy, just barbed fittings and you might need hose clamps thats simple. The HP side needs crimped on fittings and compression fittings, that can be upwards of 1600psi on the stock system alone.
