Question OK how in the heck do you....

....Adjust the power steering pump to tighten the belt? I have loosened every bolt I can find and the pump will still not move. I can't even tell which bolt is the pivot point, what in the wide wide world of sports am I missing here??

88 YJ 2.5 no AC and 2 seperate belts.

Thanks!

BTW the alternator side was a piece of cake.

If it is like the 94

If it is like the 94 the actual adjusting bolt is below the pump and is aimed at the block, perpendicular to all the rest. There are 4 bolts to loosen, two behind that are in slots and one on the front bottom that is in a slot. The very top one with the head facing the radiator is the pivot one. You loosen those four and then you tighten the one below with the head pointed towards the fender.

The tightening one is captive in that it is collared against the bracket. Therefore, as you tighten it it pulls the pump away from the block and tightens the belt. To loosen it you unscrew it but you have to push the pump towards the block as the bolt won't push it.

Hope this helps.

My 89 has one bolt that it pivots on that had me stumped. I got to it on the floor drivers side looking forward it is hidden pretty well. Take a look on the back of the pump mount. No pics I am at work.
