Towing my boat back from the lake Monday at 5 am my jeep decides its gonna shred teh plastic power steering pulley. It's a GREAT truck and I love owning it. It could have picked a better time. But oh well, that is how things are.
The new pulley does not appear to have any threads on it. And the power steering pump has straight threads comming off the shaft. Looks like you would hamer something on. It alos has a hex key bolt holding said shaft in place. I have a pretty good size pair of channel locks on it and they want to strip the shaft before loosening the bolt.
Any ideas on what approach would work better?
Do I need to remove this assembly or did the parts place give me the wrong pulley?
