Pulley puller vacuum pump

Hey dudes,

Trying to replace vacuum pump on 94 7.3 stroker. Cannot get the pulley off to get the pump out of the truck.

I went an got a pulley remover from advance for 44 bucks but the instructions freaking suck. I cannot figure it out. I get the concept fine, but the tool removal seems to be missing a part.

Anyone have any info or video on this, how to remove. Do I have the right tool? What tool should I ask for? Really miffed. Last project on my rebuild. Just did all brake system. Complete. Bled it, No leaks and I still have breaks that seem to be good on the first push but the Have to push hard and loose stopping power.

Am I at least pointed in the right direction. Two years ago when I parked it they told me vac. Pump.

Mechanic wanted 90$ an hour to change!!!! Thats almost more than the pump. I told him just get the pulley off. Nope 90 an hour and no guarantee, he won't run into "trouble"....

Thanks!

Yes it looks exactly like the kit except it doesn't have the big NUT! That's why it isn't working there's nothing to press against the clam shell. Taking it back now! You guys are the best.

Yep. On my way there after work. Can't beat that. As long as it doesn't break before I get the pulley off I'll be happy. Thanks for your help. Hope the vacuum pump is the reason for my bad brakes after this confusion do a simple pump.

Vacuum pump

When you get the VP off, I would like to see if you would ship it to me, i will pay for the shipping. Sounds weird I know, but, I am in need of an old vacuum pump as I am converting to hydroboost and my VP is going out. Already have a SD electric pump to operate the HVAC. I need to make a bracket for an idler pulley to keep the belt routing the same.

I don't have mine torn down yet, that's the reason I would like to make a bracket with an idler pulley before I begin the tear down and install.

Thanks
