How do you take the pulley off the power steering pump?
You have to use a pulley puller that you can find at many parts stores or order on-line. Do not hammer the pulley onto the new pump or you will damage it. Use an installer or the bolt, nut and washer that comes with many replacement P.S. pumps to press the pulley on the shaft, making sure it is pressed on as far as it was on the old one was so the belt will be properly aligned.

It must be pressed off. You then press it on the new pump. Special tools are required. Some auto parts stores will rent the tool free, if you buy the pump from them.
To the best of my knowledge on this truck you have to first remove the power steering pump then get a tool called a "power steering pully puller" and make sure you get one wit…h the power steering pully installer with it. Your local auto parts store will have one and a few have ones they will loan you. The parts representative there should be able to instruct you on the proper use of both tools.

The pully is pressed on, so you will need to remove pump from vehicle and have the correct tools to remove the pully from the pump. . I just did this today. I have a 1994 F-1…50 300-6. I purchased a pulley puller from an auto parts store and pulled the pulley off before removing the pump (took 2 people for me!). This also required removing the radiator fan shield to get clearance for the puller. You cannot remove the pump first because there is not clearace to remove the bolts. I chipped the pulley in a few places fighting the bolts, so be gentle. I didn't get an installer, so needless to say, I haven't put the new pump on (as far as I can see, its impossible without one). I'll update as soon as I get it on! As a side note, the pulley has to be ordered from Ford directly (unless someone is better than me...can't find it online), so again, be gentle. . I think Ford does the same as everyone else, in that the shaft is threaded, in which case you can just run a bolt, and tighten it to re-install the pulley. If not put the pulley on first, and find some very thin wrenches to tighten those bolts. In 30 years I have never pulled the pulley off on the car, so, I know it can be done. If need be bolt the brackets onto the pump before installation, then install pulley, then re-install pump.The reason you have to order pulley from Ford, is because it is not supposed to be taken off. If you want one cheaper, and quicker, go to your nearest high performanbce store. We run custom pulleys on race motors all the time. They will probably have one in stock. Dont overcomplicate things.
Loosen the bolts to the pully before removing the serpetine belt will often help. Put a wrench end on two different bolts at time to apply pressure enough to make each come lo…ose. The final one can be tough, but screw drivers in one of the holes of the bolts already removed will help hold it still while breaking the last one. Then remove the serpentine after all of the bolts are loose.
How do you take the power steering pump off a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix Do you have to take the pulley off?
First remove the coolant overflow container then unbolt fuse centre and push aside. Next remove the serpentine belt and put aside (note the routing). Put an oil pan under the …pump. Remove the fluid line from the bottom of the pump with a stubby wrench. Remove the return hose by compressing the clip with a pair of pliers. Allow to drain fluid as much as possible. There are two bolts that secure the pump to the block (one on the top one on the bottom). Using a deep socket line up the hole on the pulley with the bolts and remove the bottom one first then the top. Pull the pump up and out of engine bay near the firewall and strut mount (its tight but it will come out). Take the pump to your local service centre to have the pulley removed from the dead pump and installed on the new pump. Don't try to pry it you will only damage the pulley. A pulley puller/installer must be used. Installation is the reverse but is easier from the bottom as you can see the bolt holes. Top off the fluid using standard GM power steering fluid which is available at GM dealers.(requires a funnell with a long flexible neck) Replace the serpentine belt (use a new one). Reinstall coolant overflow and secure the fuse centre. Power wash the engine to get rid of any spilt fluid as it is very flamable. Start the car and with both wheels off the ground turn the wheel left to right several times. Confirm that there are no leaks. That's it drop the car and go for a test drive.

How do you get to the bolt located behind the power steering pulley to take out the water pump when there is no holes in the power steering pulley to remove the power steering pump?
Are you sure that bolt has to come out to change water pump? That bolt should be one of three that hold the p/s pump to the bracket. Those bolts are removed by removing the p/…s pulley first. That requires a special puller to r & r the p/s pulley.
