Just that, try it, in a safe place,
i have 96 jeep with no belt, in fact pump missing.
the pump is optional in most cases, because no body wants to die.
belt flies off.. it just reverse to manual mode.
the only possible issue is lub, for the rack-and-pinon.

Should not be too hard. I have not done one on an 1986 model but I have on a 1983. The principle will be the same.

  • You need to drain the fluid.
  • Disconnect all the pump hoses.
  • Release the pump pivot and adjustment bolts and remove the pump from the vehicle.
Replacement is the reversal of the removal operation.
  • Tighten all the bolts.
  • Adjust the drive belt tension.
  • Fill and bleed the system.
Following the above procedure should get the job done. Take your time doing the job and double check your work at the end of the job. Check for any fluid leeks from the system.

    The following procedure requires the use of the GM Puller tool No. J-29785-A (1985-92), Puller J-25034-B (1993-96) or equivalent, and the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent.

    2. For 1996 vehicles, remove the air cleaner assembly for access.
    3. For 1993-96 vehicles, remove the hood latch and the upper fan shroud.
    4. Release tension and remove the drive belt.
    5. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
    6. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts, then reposition the pump as necessary for access to the hoses.
    7. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
    8. Remove the hoses from the power steering pump and drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
    WARNING Be sure to cap all openings in the pump hydraulic system to prevent excessive fluid spillage and the possibility of system contamination.
    1. Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle.
    To install:
    1. Position the pump to the vehicle, then uncap and connect the pump hoses.
    2. Install the steering pump to the retaining bracket, then secure using the retaining bolts. Tighten the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). For 1996 vehicles, tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
    On early-model vehicles where the drive belt is tensioned by pivoting the power steering pump assembly, do NOT fully tighten the mounting bolts at this time, since you will just have to loosen them again for belt installation and adjustment.
    1. Install the pump pulley using the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent. Press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump.
    2. Hand-tighten the pivot bolt, the adjusting bolt and the washer.
    3. Install the drive belt. On early-model vehicles so equipped, properly adjust the belt tension. For details on belt installation and tension adjustment.

    Attempting to replace power steering pump.


    Why are you trying to remove the flywheel? Do you mean the pump pulley? If you loosen the mounting bolt and the adjuster bolt of the pump, it will move so that you can remove the belt. The procedure for removing the pump is as follows:
    Clamp the power steering feed hose shut so fluid loss will be minimized when the hose is disconnected.
    Disconnect the feed hose and pressure line at the pump. Note the difference between the pressure and the feed hoses; the feed hose is held to the pump with a spring type clamp, and the pressure line has two bolts holding it to the pump body. Cap of plug the line and hose to prevent leakage or contamination.
    Note the drive belt tension (you will have to return the belt to your estimate of that tension when you replace the pump).
    Remove the pump mounting bolt and adjuster bolt. Remove the pump.
    Installation is reverse of removal. Install a new o-ring on the end of the pressure line. Make sure to adjust the drivebelt tension (lever it back to where you estimate it way). Check the power steering fluid level and add some, if necessary, then bleed the power steering system (while the car is running turn the wheels all the way to the right and to the left four or five times).
    Hope this is helpful.
