One question and one word of caution:
Question--what prompted you to replace your PS pump? (Are you sure the PS pump is the source of whatever troubles your power steering has?)
Caution--when installing PS pump pullies, it's important to get the pulley perfectly in line with all the other pullies in the accessory drive line. The PS pulley can be pressed on to a variable depth, and if pressed too deep (or not deep enough), it will be out of line with all the other pullies, and cause belt noise. To quote the FSM:
"With Serpentine Belt, run engine until warm (5 min.) and note any belt chirp. If chirp exists, move pulley outward approximately 0.5 mm (0.020 in.). If noise increases, press on 1.0 mm (0.040 in.). Be careful that pulley does not contact mounting bolts."
I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.
