    I took the power steering pump off last night to rebuild it this weekend. For the life of me I can not get the pulley off of the shaft. I have tried PB Blaster, heat, and a BFH all with no luck. Any idea's or am I sol? thx....steve

    Most press on. The shaft is like a Morse Taper. You may need to have someone with a shop press get it off. There is probably a threaded hole in the center of the shaft, and that is how you press it back on, with a bolt screwed into the the center and a BF washer. Tighten all the way, you'll know when it won't go any farther.
    This is not a case for a BFH, don't even go there.

    There is a specific tool. Get one and it makes your life soooo much easier. You can rent them at the auto stores too.

    Saginaw pumps require a special puller- installer tool. Not really expensive maybe $20. Good luck!
