Power steering pump/newbie goof

I tried to change my PSP. Got the belt off, no problem. Removed the 3 bolts, and 2 lines from the pump. I thought the bracket that holds the psp would come off with the pumps 3 bolts. Thats as far as I could go because the pulley is on one side of the bracket and the pump on the other. Looks like you have to remove the vacuum, air cond, idler pulley etc. Could that be right? Anyway I wound up putting everything back together as it was before.(bummer) If I can get a psp puller in between the pump and radiator I can do the job but there is not much room (maybe 4 in. or so) and the fan shroud so is there a thread about psp removal on 97 7.3 psd? I looked but no luck. TIA
