ALL sound advice here.
BUT,, I didn't see any good advice on removing the old one.
DO NOT rely on the puller to "pull it off".
Load the puller a few turns and get your hammer out and ,,,tap-tap-tap it.
A few more turns and tap-tap-tap it.
It WILL come off,, I have seen almost ALL pitman pullers break from just cranking on it to get it to move.
If it doesn't move,,, heat it up,,, burns the loctite off and expands it on the shaft. The cast metal of the pitman SHOULD heat faster than the shaft due to the porosity of the metal it's made of.
