I finally got around to pulling the old PS pump out of the 60. To make it easy, I think I need a pulley puller to swap pulley from old to new. Or... is there another way (read reaaally easy way) to get that thing off there?

Is the 60 pump different from the 62? I don't know but all you need is a 17mm wrench to remove the nut from the pulley and it pulls right off. DON'T lose the key (wedge) that secures the pulley to the pump shaft! Loosen the nut before removing the belt.

Hi Shaun,
If the pulley is pressed on I have the remover/install tool at work that you could borrow but like Steve posted I think it is a bolt on pulley.
Also if you already have the pump off the truck an impact should also break the nut loose. Good luck with the repairs. Art

these are not reverse thread and just slide onto the shaft like Steve said.

I have had good luck by losening the nut so it is still on by a few threads, holding the whole assembly by the pully in my hand (pump hanging from it) and tapping on the nut with a hammer. A few of mine were on pretty tight but it worked. I could swing by after work and help you try to get it off of there if you want also.

I got the nut of there just fine, it does seem "keyed". it moves very slightly on the shaft (that's what she said), but doesn't want to come off.

Since the pump is out, I'll try Marco's tactic. Marco...if I can't get it done, I'll take you up on the offer after work some time this week.

thanks!

Just drive it around for a bit with the nut loose. It will loosen that pulley, no problem. Don't ask me how I know. :hill:

Worked great, thanks for the tip. It took me all of 5min including interruptions. This one appeared to have anti-seize or grease on it or something and was quite easy to get removed.

next...pump goes back in, gear box gets sent to West Texas off-road for a rebuild, then upon its return...back together including new TRE's, rotors and pads. :thumb:

to keep things in one thread, in case anyone else needs help...

I'm finally going to re-install the new pump tomorrow morning. Couple of questions:

1. should I put anti-seize or grease on the key and pump shaft? all the install bolts?
2. Can I put the pulley on after installing back on the bracket? It would seem a lot easier without that damn pulley in the way.
3. dumb question: I assume putting the pulley back on is just a matter of torquing in back on with the nut and washers with the wooddrift key in place. correct?

Anything else?

thanks.

No grease on the pump shaft but clean it and the pulley well. None on the bracket bolts, either. The pulley can be reinstalled after the pump and bracket are bolted to the engine and it is probably easier that way. Geting the pulley back on the shaft with the key is a little tricky but not that bad. You can even have the belt installed on the pulley and get the pulley on the shaft if the PS pump is in its loosest postion and the idler pulley is adjusted very loosely too. I know because I did it this morning while swapping in a new water pump on Bart. ;)

Yes, yes, and yes. Don't go nuts with the antisieze but a little won't hurt. I'm pretty sure there is room to install the pulley with the pump in place. Once the belt is wrapped around the pulley and tensioned, it should be easy to torque the nut to fully seat the pulley.

Next question - What fluid are you going to use in the P/S system?

Suggestion: When I did the engine swap on my 4Runner, the P/S pump whined terribly when I turned the steering wheel using Mobil 1 ATF (Dextron) fluid. After much discussion with Red Chilli, I replaced the pump, but with a stock reman versus a "high performance" pump from Performance Steering Components. The whine was still very evident.

Note - They will only warranty their pumps if you use Royal Purple Max EZ High Performance Power Steering Fluid.

When I changed to this fluid, within an hour of driving, the sounds went away and have not returned. Keep in mind, I had driven it for several hours with the whine prior to changing the fluid. Made me a believer. This fluid is available in many local auto parts stores. .....Just a suggestion. Terry
