It appears the bearing went bad on the water pump pulley because I have play when I move the pulley. My question is, when I buy a new water pump will it come with a pulley? I have tried to find a water pump pulley online and says there is none for my vehicle.

Re: water pump pulley 1996 jeep cherokee
James, I believe the pulley is just bolted to the pump shaft, so u should be able to remove it and reuse it. The play in it is in the shaft of the water pump, so the pulley should be fine, just remove and bolt to the new pump.

Did you take the time to clean all pulleys good with brake clean or similar cleaner, when belt was off? . Sometimes a little antifreeze, or windsheild washer antifreeze can get spilled on the belt(s) and cause that, as well as an oil drip. Take a flashlight & double check that you don't have oil dripping down on there somewhere. Only other thought is that maybe power steering pump working too hard or alternator on it's way out, causing extra load on the belt.
I'll bet your car died. And it over heated, And the battery was flat , And the steering went out and every other system run off of the belt.
This is for anybody who has had trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.
Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller
ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name
suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on
the center nut of this pulley.
Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the
engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt
on the final pulley.
