Power Steering Pump Installation
- Use a suitable puller to remove a pressed on pulley from the pump. DO NOT hammer the pulley to free it from the shaft.
- Install brackets, hoses and other parts on replacement pump.
- Use enclosed installation kit to install pulley. Use of any other tool will void the warranty.
- Tighten hex nut until pulley is flush with the shaft. Put pressure and return lines in a drain pan and using fluid approved for your car, fill reservoir flushing both lines until fluid runs clear.
- Install pump and tighten belt to correct tension.
- Bleed system (see page 1).

- Remove pressure fitting from new pump being careful not to let the flow control valve and spring to fall out.
- Line reservoir up with mounting holes and install bolts and pressure fitting finger tight.
- Press reservoir down until it seats on the pump. Tighten bolts and pressure fitting to correct torque specification.
