It takes a special tool. They are about $90 to buy but the parts store should change it for you if you buy the pump from them. Also it's best to flush out the rest of the system so you don't end up with the olé Ford grown.

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.

End play is normal but 1/4 inch of end play is a bit excessive. Use a stethoscope or even a stick as a stethoscope to determine what is quilling. My guess is, 1-vacuum pump, 2- A/C clutch, or 3- power steering pump.
