Trying to find new power steering pump and pulley??...
#1
Im in need of finding a new power steering pump and pulley. the pulley is a DO0R-B and the pump ive found at a couple of different places, but just want to make sure i am getting the right one. ive found that i cant trust the parts stores to give me the right parts i need for my 1971 Mustang Grandé Coupe W/351C 2 Bolt main 4V engine FMX transmission and it HAS A/C. Through my resporation process i have only found few trusted sources to be able and give me the proper guidance and help that i have needed. the parts stores such as advance auto, O'rielly's, NAPA, and even Mustang's Unlimited have all at some point given me the incorrect part after looking it up in there computer and telling me its right... but overall... i have completely rebuilt my engine from top to bottom from bearings to seals... the whole works and had a local shop do the transmission rebuild for me at a great price and vey knowledgable service in the transmission... so i now have the engin and transmission in and am in need of power steering pump and a new pulley because the amateur i am completely destroyed the old one and still did not acchieve getting it off of the pump yet... so any guidance to where i could be pointed in the right direction of where to get these items at a fairly low cost would be greatly appreciated... thanks.

ive found this pulley on ebay but im not sure if it will fit my application or if it would matter or not??... because it is model #7AA instead of being DO0R-B??... any ideas guys??...

You do know that there is a special tool needed to remove PS pump pulleys

The pump I picked up from O'Reilly Auto Parts (PN: 20-6174 - $46.99) fits perfect, and even matches up with the factory hose fittings (the pressure hose I got from them however, does not match up - wrong pump-side fitting).

And yes - Mark's correct. You'll need that special tool to remove and replace the pulley. It's easier done on the bench, but can be done on the car, provided you have enough room in there

Hope that helps!

I actually pulled my pulley off the original pump, 'blasted and painted it along with the bracket, then put it all back together with the new pump.

Are you saying your original pulley is now damaged? If so, you might check with Don @ Ohio Mustang (member 'OMS' here on the forums). I'll bet he's got some lying around, or would have the line on a new one. (Edit - Dang... he beat me to it. That's guy's always on the move)

Auto Zone has the pulley puller as part of their tool loan programme. They also sold me a pump 2 years ago. You pay them the retail price for the puller and then bring it back for a full refund. Helsp them sell parts that require special tools.

+1 to that. no need to buy a tool you need 1 time.

I found a guy on craigslist today that was selling cleveland parts and has almost everything under the sun... well I got the powere steering pump that is already chromed in pretty good shape almost immaculate for just $25... an awsome price and really nice guy... well when I went to pick it up... well its the DOAR-A which seems pretty similar to my old pulley but it is an original ford stamped pulley... for 25 dollars im pretty excited... I go back home after new years and will check to see if this pulley will work... I will keep you guys updated... is there any advice you guys might have??... for it being a different pulley than the original one I had on there??... any advice would be greatly appreciated... thanks in advamce...

Check the diameter and groove to make sure they're the same. The diameter isn't as critical, because you can just adjust out the difference (if it's not too much) or measure the belt path and get an appropriate length belt (if there's a big difference). The groove size is the important part - if it's too small or too big, you'll have problems with the belt fitting in there and working properly. If it's the same - Bonus!

OK - is the new pulley not already attached to the chrome pump or something? I guess I'm have a reading comprehension down-day or something. It sounds like you're going to have to pull stuff apart anyway, unless the whole deal came with the right bracket attached as well.

Good luck with it - sounds like a great score!
