Power Steering Pump

I think the power steering pump in one of my trucks is shot. It turns real hard when not moving. Anyway I went to put a new pump and in it and got a power steering pump pulley puller from Advanced Auto, but it wouldn't fit with the fan shroud, so I moved the Fan Shroud and it kept hitting the inter cooler. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Is there a shorter puller out there that works?

On a side note, why the F*** would ford make it so you have to take the pulley off first to get the pump out? Why not be able to remove the pump then take the pulley off. GRRRRRRRRRRR.

you have to remove the innercooler pipe on the driver side, the air intake hose from filter, then take left front wheel off and remove fender well. otherwise enjoy leaning over the fender to get to the sumbikit. Can you tell I did this all last month, BUT nobody carries MY high pressure line for my specific truck....

I am having the same problem. a few months ago it was really hard to turn so thought it was the power steering gearbox. changed that out and it was turning just fine. now about 8 months later its getting hard again to turn sometimes, so I am guessing its the steering pump unless someone else has some input on that.

My buddy had hard steer issues when his stabilizer was jacked up too. If you cannot turn the wheel while parked at idle then the pump is going or gone again. My new one is already whining....

You can get a nice install removal tool from malady for $80 and you can also take the bracket off its a ***** but makes the pulley job cake
