Steering Box Replacement, Red-Head Steering Gears

I ordered a Red-Head Steering Gear Box for my 2000 F250 4x4 7.3 and I'm considering replacing the pump while I'm at it. Looking for a pump vendor. Suggestions? Online or somebody in southern California.

Also, pulling the pitman arm, I don't have a puller as of yet. Any suggestions on acquiring a puller or a work-around.

Thanks.

you can go to autozone and rent a puller if u dont want to buy one..give them the $30 or w/e it costs, and when u return it, u get all your money back. Now if you break them. Ya, dont bother going back ha.
