vacume pump

I love my my 7.3 Powerstroke, but I am far from being a mechanic on it. I had to replace my vacume pump for the ABS system, I got the darn thing out, and pulled the pulley wheel off. But the people at the parts store didn't mention how to put the pulley back on. It is pressed on as you all know, is there a way for me to do it, or do I have to take it in to someone? Or is there is a pulley wheel that does not have to be pressed on? This sucks! I hate driving our car. I'll be very greatfull for any help out there.
FORDS FOREVER!

well, what you could do is find a bolt (grade 8 to be safe) and a nut+washer. put the washer on the bolt. thread the nut on the bolt, thread the bolt onthe shaft on the pump. then you just tightin down the nut like your tryin to take it off the bolt the result will be the nut "pressing" the pulley on the shaft. the catch, i;m not sure that the vacum pumps have threaded shafts. you used to be able to do this the the old "70's modle power steering pumps. i assume other years too. if you cant use the bolt method, try an automotive machine shop. they should have the equip. to do it. the parts store didnt offer to do it? or was it one of them discount stores?

there is a special install tool, and it works almost identical to the explanation above. the difference is if you do it without a thrust bearing between the nut and the pulley, you will probably break something. but that i show you do it......should be an SAE thread......Marc

Just make sure you don't try beating it back on (learned that one the hard way). A bigger hammer isnt always the wisest choice...
