power steering pull, play?

My truck shreded a belt today, so I was looking over all the pullys and I found the power steering pump pully, to move probably about an 1/8 inch maybe alittle more... I am assume that means its bad, How hard is it to change it, and any suggestions? Thanks Chris

you replacing the pump or just the pulley? if your doing either, then you need to get a special tool to pull the pulley from the pump. it's a PAIN in the you know what to get off if you don't have the correct tool. Advance, AutoZone rent them, and i think NAPA sells them. Ford has the weirdest pwrsteering pump pulley i've ever seen. if you're doing the pump, then set aside some time, cause you have to pull the altenator, intake, battery, batt/intake box, intercooler piping. and you can do the ccv mod, foil delete, while you're down there. it took me by myself about 6hrs to change my pump. never done it before on a ford, much less on a diesel. good luck,

if you need something gimme a shout,

Bishop

1/8 inch end play is normal on the power steering pump. Check your tension pulley if you lost the belt, this is often the culprit.

well to separate the pulley from the actual pump your gonna need the tool. promise. i thought i could just get it off and messed the pump up. GET the TOOL. can't stress that enough. it's cheap as crap to rent and it's way worth it. and yes this weather is awesome.

later,

Bishop







ps get the puller.

haha, well i took the pully back, I was looking at it and its just the pully no bearings or anything so it isnt the problem. the belt went when i put a new alternator on, i am wondering if that was more stress on an old belt, because all other pullys and tensioners seem to be just fine..

No tellin why they give up. I have had old cracked belts run forever and shinny new ones come all unglued. If it all spins free and is still in line with each other (check with a straight edge) then stick the new one on and go. I keep an extra in the truck just in case I chuck one out in the middle of no place.

completely agree AD, i do the same thing. it ain't no fun changing a pump or gearbox either. i've done both in the last 2 weeks.
