Bleh, people are already being stupid in traffic this morning, sunlight, along with rain, seem to really make people do a number.


If all goes according to plan with the new tool/pulley tonight, i might see if i can manage that last hour of sunlight where the direct sun will be off me, but it could be a few days with the heat, i'm not built for it.....

Didn't think of asking them for a new pulley, i might try that.

Well, new tool, new pulley.

The time it took me to remove the 3/4 on Ford pulley was about the same time it took me to fully and 'casually' install the new Dorman pulley, which they at least gave me a 50% discount on.

It was so amazingly easy with a tool that wasn't damaged, i had to muscle the crap out of the previous one, this was a walk in the park and my muscles thanked me!

It's all on, up and running, thanks to all the help here :)

Old pulley below, not too much damage, but who knows how long before that caused a problem.

So the new tool had a bearing in it ?

Your old pulley is the same as mine, some sort of plastic or Bakelite.

It's best you replaced it, imagine going down the highway at speed and it letting go.
Probably do damage to your hood too.

Yes, same as the old tool, however the one in the old tool was smashed inside, it must have been crumbled down to pure metal fragments the way t turned and sounded.

Right, some kind of reinforced plastic, new wheel seemed about the same weight/style. And yes, even for the full price of $10 it was worth replacing.

Also, about how far on to put it, i realised close to the end of putting it on the first time, that it was the 'stop' point of being fully over the end of the shaft - the pusher wouldn't be able to get it on any further.

I nearly didn't do that with the new one, it looked dang perfect, but after getting the belt on and looking at the end of the wheel/shaft, i re-applied the pusher and gave it the last turned until i felt it stop.

That's right, the pulley travels to the end until it's flush with the power steering pump shaft.
You can tell when you're pushing the pulley on, the shaft on the tool will suddenly stop turning when it bottoms out _ the resistance will change _ become more difficult _ that's when to stop.

There is no way in hell i would have been able to tell with the other tool, the whole affair was like a workout :(

All done now though. Should have run Mercon v through it instead, we'll see how this goes, i haven't run the engine long enough (per pump install instructions) for the fluid to get up to full temp before attempting to turn the wheel.
