Heeeeeeellllllllllppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the free 4.3 home in my garage now. It is out of a 89 s10 4x4 not the firebird that I thought.
The problem is that damn Saginaw power steering pump. I got to get to the bolts behind the pulley so I can remove the bracket that blocking the left valve cover.

How the hell does that damn pulley come off. It has a allen head bold in the center but it does break lose. How does one hold the pulley from turning. I am real close to drilling a 1 1/2 hole in the face of the pulley.

Re: Heeeeeeellllllllllppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have had luck using a old fan belt around a pulley,taking a length of pipe and putting thru it and twisting it up tight and wedging the pipe against the motor.Just my 02 for holding a pulley,dont know about your specific problem,but dont see where a hole would hurt anything

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] If there is a groove in the little nose that sitcks out....like the pulley hub.....it is a press-on...press off arrangement.....requires a puller.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Heeeeeeellllllllllppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I,m sorry my last post is misleading.
I got the allen head wrench but I cannot hold the pulley to break it lose. What is the secret.

Re: Heeeeeeellllllllllppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you use an impact wrench? They work wonders when you want to turn the bolt but not anything else. Make sure you use a quality hex bit though.

Re: Heeeeeeellllllllllppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe CJDave is right. It should be a press on deal. I broke three pullers getting mine off then back on. The hex bolt has nothing to do with the pulley.

Can you fix it?
I got a welder and a grinder. Heck yeah I can fix it.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Heeeeeeellllllllllppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Hex head is only for machining the shaft, and testing the pump before shipping...
The pulley pulls off the shaft, not unscrews.
Look for a square shoulder groove on the pulley snout.

It requires a special puller, usually available from Auto Zone or one of those places on rental or lend with a deposit.
--------------------------------

FYI, the newer Delco (CS series) require a special puller for the alternator pulley.
If you try to hammer it off, you will just bend the rotor shaft.
(ask me how much that cost me to learn...)
