Question about 1972 Chevrolet Corvette
Removing the P.S. pump pulley is not needed. The pump must be loosened at it mounting points, it will then pivot, allowing you to install the belt. After the belt is on, apply tension to it with a pry bar, while tightening the same mounting bolts.

No - no need to remove the pully. If you are certain you have the correct size belt, there should be a tensioner on the power steering pump -- or else perhaps it is on whatever else the power steering belt also is hooked into & provides power to..

To the best of my knowledge, there is only a serpentine belt on that model truck, which means that not only is your power steering not working, but your water pump isn't either. DON'T drive this until it's fixed. My guess is that an idler pulley, or a tensioner is junk. The tensioner is the one that you put a wrench on to get the belt back on, there should be a diagram of that right above the radiator. If that tensioner no longer has tension when you try to put the belt back on, then you need a new one. Sometimes, but rarely an idler pulley will go, which is just a pulley bolted to the block

Tips for a great answer:
Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.
