I want to remove the pulley from the steering pump
to replace the pump. All the removal tools I tried don't seem to match this pulley. What type and how to remove the pulley?

It's called a power steering pulley puller! Has a few different size inserts.

The center of my pulley is Hex all the inserts appear to be round in the pulley puller kit.

The inserts are round on the outer diameter, but square on the inner. First you put the screw on the pulley then wrap the inserts ocer that then the lock band over all of it.

[Thanks got the pulley off. Now the tube that goes from the reservoir to the pump leaks. I put the new o ring that comes with the new pump. It was fine for a week. What is really strange is that the old pump did not leak and the o ring was missing.

I would pull the line off, then inspect the o-ring for nicks, replace if needed!

The o ring twisted during the install but still looked useable, I reformed it and this time I greased it first
and worked it to make sure it was going on straight.

It is not leaking even after 60 MPH on the Highway.
I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks
