Question

I don't how to do this? Can this be done with the pump on the car? The pump came with a long bolt, washer and square nut. What is the square nut for? If I try to press it on with the bolt, the pump just spins. Do I have to put the pump in a press or something?

The easiest way is to heat the pulley and slip it on.
I use a small propane torch, or I guess you can use an oven.
Around 200-250 degrees should do it.
If you get it up to 400-450 the paint will start to smolder.

That sounds good, but the pulley is billet alluminum with a clear power coat on it. I'm afraid the powder coat will burn off.

Start pulley on to shaft by hand.Thread the nut on the bolt then put on the washer, screw the bolt into p/s pump shaft as far as it will go. Now you will need to hold pulley to keep it from turning and tighten the nut. This will push the pulley onto the shaft.You might want to put a little lube on pump shaft before pushin the pulley on. Good luck.

I got it on by holding the bolt and threading down the nut. It took alot of force but I finally got it on. Thanks, Mark

They make a tool for this as well. You can rent it at Autozone for free. It makes it very easy.
