    Default Removing /re installing power steering pulley

    Has anyone used the Harbor Freight /Pittsburgh 12 piece Pulley Remover and installer set ? I want to R & R the power steering pulley on the 90 CV. Pulling it off, I don't see being a problem. Reinstalling it may be.
    I really don't like using Harbor Freight stuff. This set has decent reviews and I seldom work on cars anymore. Can't find my Ford specific puller from decades ago.

    I have that set and used it on my ranger, it proved to be well made and it worked good.
    I used it to remove and replace the non serviceable fan clutch bearing assembly on the front engine cover. which was a tough job much harder than a power steering pulley should be.
    if your worried about reassembly use thick leather gloves, heat the pulley with a heat gun or even your toaster oven ( don't tell the wife LOL ) then reinstall using the tool set, with heat it will go on much easier. Any heat above room temperature will make the job easier but the hotter the easier it will be.

    I have a Lisle 39000 that I got from Amazon before they got as spendy as they are now. The one at the auto parts store was such a poorly made POS it had no hope of working, and their loaner was destroyed. I like that the part that goes over the hub is a two piece deal that bolts together rather than the C shaped piece most use. It gets full contact on the hub.

    watch getting it too hot, most of these cars have a plastic pulley that is molded over the steel hub.
