3.2 Power Steering Pump Removal?

Postby 99passport3.5 » Thu Sep 23, 2010 10:01 pm

I'm in the middle of a 3.2 to 3.5 swap on my 99 Passport. I've got all the accessories off the engine in the Honda except the power steering pump and the A/C pump. Everything I've read (my Haynes manual and Alldata) say the pulley is bolted to the pump, and must be removed before the pump can come out. My pulley looks pressed on, has no bolts or nuts on the front center of it, and it won't clear one bolt for the bracket. Getting a little frustrated on this one, any ideas? I know the obvious answer is to get a puller and take the pulley off, but I really don't want to do that, except as a last resort.

you will need a puller, should be able to rent one from autozone.

That sucks. What about getting the pulley back on the pump?

I have an Isuzu factory service manual for a 2001 Rodeo,which of course has the same engine as your vehicle.
The removal procedure for the PS pump in this manual does not require removal of the pulley. Looking at the
illustration in the manual, it seems to depict 2 bolts holding the pump to the bracket, and 2 bolts holding the
bracket to the engine. The removal of the AC pump does not require removal of the pulley either. The illustration
for the AC pump shows 2 bolts holding the bracket to the engine and 2 bolts holding the pump to the bracket.

http://www.myisuzuparts.com/1998/781/4/ ... parts.html shows the same illustration for the PS pump as the FSM

These are the bolt sizes shown in the illustration
10 X 100 7A
8 X 25 7B
8 X 100 29A
8 X 40 29B


Also note that on the illustration there is an earlier version pump depicted that shows the pulley is bolted on.

It's bolt #29A that's hanging me up. It won't come out of the bracket with the pulley on. I'll go out there and take another look, but hey, any excuse to make it to Autozone, right? P.S.~I have the later style pump, non-bolt-on, pressed on pulley.
