Power steering pump help!

Hello all,

I'm about to change the PS pump on my 5.0 EF Ghia but have been told that the pullry needs to come off first before accessing the mounting bolts?

1. Do I have to buy the special tool to do this?

2. Do I need a different one to get it back on like the Ellery manual suggests?

I'd like to hear of anyone's experiences in this challenge before I get out the tool set!

Cheers all, Mike

Hey mike...
Yes unfortunately you do HAVE to buy the special tool as there is no way around it..
You can buy the Litchfield version of the puller which also reverts into the pulley installer also its not that expensive from memory.. About $70-$80

Thanks svo!

Bugger, I just KNEW I'd have to buy one of those things!

Anyone in the Adelaide area have one I could borrow for a few hours?

I searched everywhere in Adelaide, but couldn't find one, just got blank looks from most mechanics saying "don't they just screw off!". I guess you could try and borrow one from your local ford service centre, just go chat with them and leave a deposit or something.

I just got an ABW tool for removing and refitting the pulley and was $92...

Doooh . . .

Sorry I wasn't checking earlier :(

You can remove the PS pulley using a old ball joint puller or similar (this is what I used, I just ground out the semi-cicular end to be the slightly larger size of the pulley's lip ), which may or may not have been cheaper than buying an official PS puller. . .

Just FYI, the thread on the PSP Pulley shaft is a whitworth thread, and you can use a sawn off whitworth bolt, with a couple of nuts + washers to put it back on again... (screw on a nut to the bolt, put the bolt thru the pulley and into the shaft, and gradually tighten the nut to push the pulley back on...

Oh, and getting them to move for that first little bit can be a real strain ( and freaky that your going to break something ). If your using decent spanners etc to turn the tool, a pipe to extend the spanner might be helpful in applying the torque a little more easily ( but remember to be careful lest you bust the tool / spanner )
