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 with 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.

I had to rent the 'pulley puller', and remove the pulley prior to removing the power steering pump. Then replace the pump on the car and use the pulley tool to press the pulley back on to the pump shaft. There was not much room to work, even with the fan shroud loosened, but eventually I got it off and on. Again, thanks for the help.
NO you do not. Just loosen all the bolts up on the bracket that holds the power steering pump and then pull the big bracket back enough to get to that corner bolt. It does not have to be moved very far. You must be working on a vortec.
Lossen the serpentine belt. Then remove the power stering pump pulley. Drain the fluid, at the rack would most likely work better. then pull all of the mounting bolts.

The bolt that is behind the power steering pulley can only be removed by removing the power steering pump. you should be able to just pull of the pully with a power steering pully puller I got the pulley off but cannot figure out how to get it back on. Might be screwed. Probably best to remove the power steering pump. Recommend you remove the two mounting bolts for the power steering pump. They are located in the face of the pump and can be accessed using a 13mm or 1/2 deep socket through the access holes in the pulley. This will allow the pump to be moved out of the way to remove the last bolt from the water pump. gt Removing the power steering pump by going through the holes in the pulley was life saving info for me, and 13mm can work but 1/2" was the right deep socket size for me. It's hard to see where the bolts mount to though as they go thru the p/s pump, try and remember where it was so going back together will be easier.
When you pull up the flag you pull it up by the rope. The rope has a pulley on it. So the actual poll is not a pulley but it has a pulley system on it
I have a 1990 3.0 I don't know if it is the same engine and if it has the same layout as mine but I hope that it helps you. First take belt off a/c. Then take the serpentine belt off. Pull off alternator, a/c compressor and bracket. Take lines off power steering pump. Catch fluid in pan and discard at a place that takes it for disposal. Then take the " L " shape bracket off the back of the power steering pump. Take the two bolts off the front of it. Let it set for right now. Take the belt tensioners for the serpentine belt and the a/c off. Next support the engine with a jack. Now take all the bolts out for the motor mount going into the engine. Then take the two bolts out on the frame rail. Pull on the motor mount towards the frame rail. Move to the side. If you can pull the pulley off the power steering pump where it is setting. You can pull the pump up through the top. If not (like I couldn't) take the pump and turn it so the dipstick hole is pointing down and kind of like behind the crankshaft pulley and the pulley for the pump is in front of it. Push it down to wedge it in place. Then grab the motor and pull it to the front of the car. Pull hard. the pump should fall out. Take pulley off and anything that as to go on the new pump. But leave the pulley off. Put the pump in from the top side. Then put the pulley on the pump. Then reinstall everything. That is how I remove and install my pump.
I need help on how to remove my powersteering pump? You must first remove the power steering pump pulley. Most part stores have a tool loaner program so you can borrow the puller and and return it and get your money back. After the pulley is removed there are 3 bolts holding the power steering pump to the bracket. Pull those and the long bracket that is on the back of the pump and connects to the exhaust manifold and alternator and the pump should slide out. This information is for a 5.7L engine, but I believe it is close to the same for a 4.3L.
pull the intake , and then pull the motormount and its under the motor mount
