Power Steering pump replacement 5.4L
Anyone have any suggestions? Power steering pump went out on my 01 Supercrew. Removed the old pump, removed the pulley and went and purchased a new pump. While pressing the pulley onto the new pump, it shattered the back of the pump out, not to mention dethreading the press kit bolt. I've only assisted in a couple of these operations in the past, but I've never seen a pulley so difficult to press on. Got another pump, and a friend used a press to attempt to put it on(since the kit press was screwed) and it shattered the back out yet again, even tho it was flat against almost and inch of steel. And the pulley still wasn't on! Anyone run into this crap before? Tomorrow I'm headed to the junkyard to get a used on with the pulley already in place, but I'm thinking there's a difference in the pulley shaft size, even tho the pump looks the same.
