2000 Jeep Wrangler power steering question

How do you get power steering pully back on the power steering pump without damaging the new pump. I have a puller, but have had problems when putting the pully back on.

Any suggestions.

I believe you need to use a press...or if you can put enough force on it, you can just manually press it back on. I think the key to not damaging them is to not send short frequent impacts down the shaft (ie hammering the pulley back on).

Get a piece of all thread and thread into the shaft on pump. A heavy washer and nut pretty much presses it on.

How do you keep the shaft from spinning?

Sorry for the delayed response. Once you have the nut run all the way down to the washer just double nut on the outside end. Acts just like the head of a bolt. Just hold it with another wrench. Only the nut actually pressing on the washer should turn and press on the pulley.

I bought a new pully and pump and had the auto parts store put in on right at the counter. If you have an Advanced auto parts store near you they will put it on for free!

You can do this yourself if you have a pully kit, its fairly simple! My problem was I was using a large pully puller and did not have a specific power steering pully puller kit.
