Power Steering Pump repairs

My xc has a leaking power steering pump and i am trying to fit a 6cyl pump in place of the large round one. to remove the bracket from the pump i have to first take the pulley off, is the allen head bolt that holds it in left or right hand thread??

Heh, can't be sure, but if its anything like the e series, the allen keyhole is a dirty trick. The psp pulley probably just pulls off ( altho if this is the case, you will most likely need a special puller to get it off ).

You'll probably find that deeper into the allen hole, is a thread that the psp puller and installer will screw into . . .

i'll give the left hand thread idea a go if not it'll just be a matter of bigger hammer or something

Re: Power Steering Pump repairs

You need a puller as mentioned above to get the pulley off.Theres really no other way without damaging the pulley.Also check the actual shaft diameter if you're swapping pulleys as the later pumps had a larger shaft than the big round early ones.

Re: Power Steering Pump repairs

its only the bracket that i am after i am going to fit a 6cylinder pump to the V8 bracket, this can be done as my V8 fairlane has one fitted at the moment. so i am not overly concerned about the pump itself
