SOURCE: 84 vette, how do I remove power steering pulley to get the pump out?

Usually you have to take a pulley puller kit and just pull the pulley off the shaft. Installation is reverse, you use a threaded stud in the shaft to pull the pulley on with.

You don't. Once shaft cracks it will crack pulley when pressing off. Shaft now expanded to large.

How to remove front axle on 1999 saab 1999


TO loosen of the idler pulley it is essential that the pulley nut first be loosed off to allow the shaft to be moved . The allen head screw unless it is seized up(rusted) will move freely once the pulley nut is loosened. Before you go to extremes consider other alternatives .--removing the pulley off the shaft ( cut the belt to achieve this) see if there is room to attach vice grips in the head of the screw . If you have space ,drive an allen key slightly larger into the hole. (SAE instead of metric). The absolute thing I would use is a torch in that area as you could wind up burning harness wires or setting fire to the vehicle. If the screw head is in an awkward spot remember that longer bars /extensions may make the job easier.

Drive pulley spins and slides forward and back to motorwhich in turn throws belt off so what i need to know is how to replace drive pulley or if it is repairable with a lock key


Which pulley are you talking about? Is it the Idler Pulley that applies pressure to the belt? That is typically the pulley that goes bad first which can be replaced. The bearing will go bad and won't stay flat causing the belt to wander. If you get a new pulley or idler assembly replace the belt at the same time for peace of mind.

I need the drive belt configuration for a 1988 Jeep Cherokee.


To replace belt, first loosen the pivot and slide bolt on the steering pump, then use the jack bolt below the pump to move it. Belt goes (ccw) around outside of ps pump, under idler pulley, over a/c compressorover alternator over fan pulley, over crank pulley over water pump and back to the ps pump. best bottom (grooved area) should match with any pulley with grooves, back of belt should contact smooth pulleys. 9example...grooved part contacts ps pulley, smooth back goes under idler pulley) When finished the water pump should spin ccw (I've seen them put on incorrectly so it turns backwards) Tighten jack bolt till the long strech of belt is giving about 1" deflection, then lock pivot and slide bolts down.

Tricks to replacing serpentine belt on 97 jeep wrangler?


I just replaced water pump on my 97 wrangler, 4 cyl- without AC. Engines with AC are a little different. Since I don't have one, I can't saw how to change the belt--- but here it is for the 4 cylinder 1997 without AC.


So I had the belt off, and last thing was to put it back.

A. If you are unsure about memorizing the belt path, make your own drawing. If you are absolutely sure you can memorize the belt path---- make a drawing. Just some circles for each pulley.

Removing belt. Key mechanical location: The tensioning idler pulley. This adjustable tensioning pulley is on the right, below the power steering pump. It can be moved on a diagonal to tension the belt. The key to moving it is you must loosen the idler pulley mounting screw about two turns.

Locate the idler pulley. There is a hex head screw in the center. Use a 15 mm combination wrench to loosen this. Turn counter clockwise two turns.

Now, locate the tension adjusting screw. Look at about 10 oclock position above the idler pulley you just loosened, near the thermostat housing. There is a hex head that runs a long screw diagonally behind the plate. There is a block mounted to this screw that holds the idler. So turning this screw changes the tension.

Using a 15 mm wrench, turn this screw counter-clockwise to loosen the tension on the belt. A socket and ratchet drive will help. You will need a universal or a 3 in' "wobble" extension, because the thermostat housing and temperature sender are in the line of the hex head screw drive.

Good word: This rod is likely to be rusty and VERY stiff. Do not keep turning this if it is getting stiffer and stiffer. That means rust is jamming up the threads. Lubricate the block area on the back of the plate, directly behind the idler pulley, and work the tensioning screw backwards and forwards to get the threads cleaned up. If you have time, (probably an hour extra) you may wish to back the rod right out and remove it for wire brushing, and then re-install with marine grade anti-corrosion grease. I did this five years ago and it still is always moving freely.

Once tension is off, remove the belt.

Thread up the new belt. Expect to have to loosen the idler even MORE, because this new belt is not stretched at all.

Bring tension back up with the tensioner screw. Use your thumb to press on the belt on one of the long spans. Under moderate pressure it should move about 1/4 inch.

Tighten the pulley center screw to about 13 to 15 foot/lbs. If you do not have torque wrench, just make sure you don't use any more force than you can put on the wrench using only your "pinkie" finger. This is usually safe to prevent over-tightening anything on the outside of the engine.

I borrowed this quote from JeffsJeep at the wranglerforum.com.

A look at the FSM for the 97 shows:
BELT TENSION SPECIAL TOOLS BELT I SPECIFICATION
NEW SERPENTINE 800-900 N BELT (180-200 lbs. force) *
USED SERPENTINE 623-712 N BELT (140-160 lbs. force)

So if you have a tension measuring tool, then you can check it. If not, I suggest being conservative with tension. If it slips when wet, you can snug it up then. If you make the belt too tight, it wears out the water pump bearings.
