power steering and brakes

I have an 06 f-250 and i have no power steering. Also my abs light came on and the brake pedal only goes down about an inch and its hard as hell to push the pedal in. Even with the pedal down as far as i can push it i have to use the e brake to some to a dead stop. I took it somewhere and they said that the brake problem and steering is the power steering pump which i findhard to believe. I wasnt sure how hard the pump was to put on and was wondering if anyone knows if those problems are the pump and how hard the pump would be to replace. thanks

these trucks have hydroboost. Basically it uses the power steering pump to pressurize the brakes.Bad pump equals no brakes and no steering. You will need a steering pump pulley remover to take the pulley off. I have a 7.3(but you still needtoremove the pulley), If i remove it first, i dont have to remove the large bracket its bolted to. Not sure on a 6.0. But the pulley wont come with a new pump.

Hard to say, i dont know if its working at all. But if you need to use the e brake to stop, I would not use it! Rebuilt pumps arenot that much cash. Wewill get into a debate here whether or not you should use one. I did onmy wifes it works. Its a bit noisy, but synthetic fluid quieted it some.
where are you? Its not hard to change 3 bolts holding the pump to the bracket,(most likely) 2 lines. Remove the pulley, put it back together.

the tool is like 15 bucks at advance auto. Its a simple design with a sleeve and the internal cups.I cant describe it but its small. the whole thing is smaller then a tennis ball.
You dont want a big gear typepuller.It wont fit under the hood,in front of the radiator.
Iwill look for an ebay item number so you can look at one.
