POWER STEERING PULLEY

1989 Buick Reatta

Steering problem
1989 Buick Reatta 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 68,000 miles

How do you press the drive pulley back on the power steering pump? Can you drive it on with a dead blow hammer or horse hide mallet?
Thanks, MJM

Hi: If you use a hammar, cover the pulley with a block of wood or something to protect it from damage. Or, you could try a large c-clamp. If that doesn't work, you'll need to get someone with a press.
