Here is what you do. This steering column is square right. and on both sides there are pins that pivot the steering wheel. Take off the steering wheel. Then the turn signal assembly. Keep the screws handy. Take a big flat screw driver, there is a square hole on the bottom right side. Push in and turn. Congratulations you just took out the spring. Next get a dent puller smaller one that the end screws on. Put one of the screws that came from the turn signal assembly in the dent puller. Next thread the screw in the side of the column there are little pins on both sides and use the weight on the puller to knock out the pins. Becarful not to break the selector rod that the ignition gears ride in.

Remove the power steering hose. Remove the power steering belt. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new power steering pump on your 1985 Oldsmobile Cutlass.
