Try jerking the wheel to one side or the other while turning the key. This should free it.

I have a 1990 Toyota 4 runner that i just replaced the front seal in the power steering pump and the seals in the steering box and now the pump will not pump-i have tried everything the haynes repair...

Did you use a power steering puller tool to remove and reinstall the power steering pulley?
If you even tapped lightly on the pulley to reinstall it you probably broke the clip that locks the power steering shaft to the pump inside.
To find out take your power steering belt back off and see if the shaft and pulley can be pulled out of the housing, if so you may need a new pump.

Loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently

Dealer, but did you check the Power steering fluid level??or any leaks. There are two hose that connect to the gear box from the power steering pump. if the pump is low on fluid you lose your power steering, if the hose has a leak or it blew and lost the power steering fluid then you lost your power steering again. 
Check the fluid level to the power steering pump and any leaks or broken hose to the gear box.
Keep me posted, be glad to help and good luck.

Believe it or not there are some problems you should take to the dealer. It never was the gear box, its a defective steering column bushing. That problem had a factory notice and the dealer would have diagnosed it immediately an fixed it free parts +$40.install. Tahoes get that problem.

Toyota steering too light

The only way I know of to bleed a power steering system is to turn the steering wheel from lock to lock (all the way to one side and then turn all the way to the other side) 3 or 4 times. that will bleed all the air out of the system. You might have had a leak for a longer than that you realized and by fixing the hose the power steering works VERY good and you are no long used to how easy it once worked.
