power steering issues retouched

Apparently the new hose was just a bandaid last week. I was driving home when the steering and the brakes went out on me, I figured the Idler pulley was dead... but The powersteering pulley is dead, and the bracket is snapped about an inch to the left of the right hand bolt on the power steering pump (if you are looking down on the engine from the bumper.)

How hard is it to replace the bracket and the pump?

Ill try to get some good pictures.

it's easier to pull the PS pump with the bracket out of the truck. to get the bracket off there are 4 bolts i think they are 11/16, pull the AC compressor off and the line off the vacuum pump

Thanks Terry. Anything special to know about pulling the AC compressor as far as chemicals or anything of that nature?

i just meant undo the 4 (i think) bolts that hold the compressor to the bracket and leave it in the truck, that way you don't need to worry about recharging the system

I don't think that is the right part number. Searching that part came up with something that doesn't look like what you need. I know this because I am doing a saginaw pump conversion and have a bracket in the garage.
