Any tips for removing power steering pump ?
#11
If you plan to paint the casing, as all need be apart to do it, know that the CJP little kit to rebuild the pump is excellent (for once)
To powder coat or paint, you would need remove the pulley, once that is done, changing the old o-rings and very few other gaskets is really easy. Messy but easy.
In case you'd go for it, I've posted the total removal/reinstall in my project thread...

 I'm sure you know this already so don't take it the wrong way, but many times people, me included, try to undo or do up hose connections and the like by using just the one wrench. Always use proper fitting wrenches on both side of the fitting. In your case in point, one 5/8 flare wrench and one 1" wrench used together.
I meant to mention that earlier, but...………. I forgot!

noted, thanks. I'm taking this a lot slower than originally planned. Waiting for the flare wrenches to arrive. I have a confession. I screwed up on the trans coupling to radiator fittings, and ended up cutting them off so i could remove the rasdiator, as the brass fittings had rounded. The real issue was the fact I was using metric wrenches and as they felt close enough i continued using them. Kind of dum logic really, but it means i need to spend 60 bucks on replacement trans cooler pipes (plus shipping and tax).... so from now on, every nut, bolt and connection comes off with love Smile

I replaced mine recently and agree with previous suggestion f removing fittings from steering box end and then remove the hoses from the pump on the bench where you have more room
