Ok I got the new pump from the parts store and went to a friends shop to use the proper puller and installer tools,,, dident go caveman style this time hahahha tool the pulley off the old one got the pumo out of the housing and when I pulled out the fitting i say the junk and corosion on the fitting and so I knew for shure that pump was bad, so I cleaned the resivoir out and waas about to install the other pump when I realized that the ony I the parts store gave me had a keyway and threads on it and mine was presfit fo back to the parts store I went, now I had to order the first fump next day order, but thank go the right pump after a little creative game of match the part it was actualy on the shelf, a quick swap and I was out the door, I swear i about killed my ribs trying to install that stupid pully, long ratchet on my ribs, pully in left hand and box end wrench in left hand and pull with right-bruis chest with ratchet and hold pully with left hand,,, it was another painfuly fulfilling experiance then I put it on too far and had to back it up. but it was on. took it home, installed it filled it with fluid, craked it up and 30 seconds later it started to feel like power steering, trurne it a while then realized some play in the steering see the next thread entitled power steering box brackets???
