    My pully is plastic & it came off in too many peices on the highway for me to have seen which way the new pully should be installed. Because of the shoulder/collar extention on one side of the pully, & the other side smooth, I dont know which side faces the engine.

Probably the best way is to blow them out with a compressor. To remove and install the pulley you need a special tool which and local parts store should have.

you probably have debris trapped in the lines and it creates more everytime you put a new pump on it. Some oil change shops offer a p/s system flush. try this before you replace the pump and again after you replace the pump again. and yes... you could be getting bad pumps.

1995 Grand Cerokee Power Steering Pump

as you mentioned, the pulley is pressed on. Many parts stores have machine shops that can move the pulley on the shaft using a press. It's best that you bring the old pump with you so whoever does the work can match the old one. Otherwise, measure the best you can. This is not a "trick" but actually how this is done!

(1)I am replacing a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo(not Limited)Power steering pump (AC - 6 cycl.). I wnet to the junk yard and got one off a '93 I believe. I got the old one off and ready to install

Check with the junkyard where you got the may need to change the pump bracket with the pump, or use a different pump.
You don't have a separate tensioner the pump is on a slide mount and is the tensioner (why the parts guy is a parts guy not a tech).

Power steering pump

First check the distance from the bracket mount points on the block, to the pump mount points on both brackets. If distance is different then the brackets are different. If they are the same, you may need to either change pump itself to one that matches engine year. However, if there is sufficient room on the pump shaft, any shop that rebuilds pumps can re-position the pulley to your specs, or replace the pulley with one that has a different offset.
