One tip with the pulley installer. If you use the typical installer available at AutoZone or Harbor Freight, you have to turn a nut while holding the jackscrew in place. Make sure you hold the jackscrew in place and turn the nut evenly. Otherwise the pulley will start going on crooked. No matter what I did, the pulley didn't want to go on straight at first, but it straightened out as I kept going.Christopher

Ok, thanks! this is the puller I will be using. http://www.amazon.com/OEM-27031-Pull.../dp/B0014WH9SY By turn the nut "evenly" do you mean make sure the nut is flat on the pully surface so the pully is going on straight?

The pump should be here next week sometime. I am having the front diff rebuilt under warranty (I hope) at the beginning of the week. So, I started soaking the pully and shaft joint down with croil (claims to creep into a 1 one millionth of and inch). Hopefully by midweek it will penetrate enough that the pully comes off with no issue. The inner threads on the shaft are pretty rusty, Hope I can screw the tool into it without to much work.

the threaded bore can be cleaned with a pipe wire brush with some wd-40 to aid in the cleaning.
If you find the pulley does not want to come off try some heat with a small propane torch [small tip] heating the shaft area of the pulley should break the bond. you should not need much heat to get it off.

I will have to see what size threads they are when I rent the tool, as i do not have a thread gauge here and internal threads in a diameter that small are kinda hard to read with a gauge anyway. I may have a tap that I can run thru it to clean them up.

using a tap may remove material then cause a failure. you can get small dia wire pipe brushes 1/8-1/4 inch
after you clean out the threads then wash out the oil with a solvent. that way the tool will lock in secure.
