The brace is there to stabilize and hold the power steering hose. When the pump is in operation, if the hoses weren't locked down they would jump all over the place and do damage to themselves.
If you need to remove the bracket, go ahead. Just be sure you put it back on.
Hope this helps.

the very fact that the clamps are holding suprises me. GREAT JOB!! i do recomend however that you dont do anymore cutting. go to the auto parts store and what youre dealing with is a garter spring style. these take a special tool that goes inside, just on the outside of the line and pushes inside to push outward on the spring inside holding the line in place.so insert, give a little twist or 2 and pull the line out. they are quite simple once you see how they work. the tools are pretty inexpensive. tell them you need the tool for ford power steering lines. they should know what youre looking for.

Pump is pretty straight forward. But why the Pulley is it defective? If it is take it to the dealer or a junk yard and get the SAME EXACT ONE. Otherwise you will be sorry. If its not defective go to Autozone and get a pulley puller ? installer( there pretty cheap) so you can remove the old one and use it on the new one. Good luck
