Anyone have a suggestion on where to get a new pulley for my new power steering pump?

The old pulley had to be cut off of the bad pump [Image: frown.gif] it was a messy job.

I tried a ford dealer, they said there was one dealer in the country who had one and it would be $70 plus freight, which I can do, just want to make sure if that's my only option or not.. Anyone know what else might work?

How did you wind up having to CUT a p/s pulley off?

Anyway, what year car might help.....

Whoops sorry [Image: smile.gif]

88 t-coupe.

I used a tool to remove the pulley, yet the pulley would not come off the the old pump. It managed to deform the pulley so badly that it would no longer be usable. To get the pulley off the pump my buddy ended up removing the bracket that the pump mounts to from the car and using a plasma cutter on the pulley.

It was a PITA trust me [Image: smile.gif]

Thats the first I've ever heard of that happening. Either way, I would think a JY pulley from a 3.8 might work, but I'm not sure on that. Also, other JY pumps could be the same, might want to do some searching on that to see if the N/A Fox bodied stangs have the same pump, if so then you're in luck [Image: smile.gif]

SOunds like you were trying to use a big 2 or 3 finger gear puller instead of a P/S pulley puller...Thte p/s ones clamp around that grooved boss in the center of the pulley..thus you don't deform the pulley trying to remove it..

The irony here is that you might need that tool to press the pulley back on without banging up the pump....

However that said I have done it without. Autozone rents the tool for a deposit.

I second (or third) the JY pulley, should be one out there in a u-pull.

However if none are available www.junkyarddog.com request the part and emails will flood your inbox. My guess, $5.00 - $10.00

Just measure your old pulley diameter, and count the belt ribs on the pulley, the width of the pulley. I believe, I am sure the inside diameter of all the pulleys on a c-2 power steering pump are the same.
