power steering pump pulley

I pulled my power steering pump off to put a new one on. I can't get the pulley off for nothin. I used a 3 arm pulley puller and it just started bending the pulley. Any ideas? This is a factory pump on a 304. . Thanks!!

They make a special puller that works good - it is available at most any auto parts place for about $20

hey Oldjeepguy thanks for the reply .how is this puller different from the 3 arm puller that I've tried? I'll gladly pay 20 bucks to get this stubborn s.o.b. off! Have you taken any power steering pump pulleys off? I swear if it's gonna be an easy job it'll be a pain in the butt for me.!!!! I can turn a 20 minute job into 2 days!

if you notice on the pulley right at the center where it fits on the shaft youll see a recessed area on the pulley around the center, thats where the pulley puller grabs. so your hooking around the center and pulling it right in the center. if you takeit to checker auto, or auto zone, they have the puller and will do it for free.

I've actually done (2) CJ's and (3) XJ power steering pump replacements this year. The proper puller hooks into the groove in the pully center and exerts force near the shaft. Trust me, you probably won't get it off without the correct puller.

Another option would be heat, heat the part with the groove and then let it cool down and try again..
If still no luck heat it again and try while still hot.......

Correct puller still the best way.....

Hey man I just did mine this week, the only way to do it is with the correct puller, if you and to make it easier heat it up a little and spray some wd-40 on it while its still hot then pull it off just dont burn yourself OH and dont use the crapy installer that come in the box try to barrow the installer from a shop good luck,, its a workout
