94 f150 power steering pump removal

my truck has a captive ,power steering pump, which appears to require the removal of the pully before I can remove the whole bracket holding the pump. there doesn't seem to be room for the power steering pully puller I can get from my parts dealer. Do I have to remove the radiator, cowling etc to do this or is there some other way

Should look something like this:

Amazon.com: PULLEY REMOVER Power Steering Pump/Alternator: Home Improvement

I'm thinking like hopkins that you're trying to use some big jaw-style puller.

what engine do you have?
"I" remove the pump from the truck-then pull the pulley off.
it will take a 'ford' only installer to install the pulley.

why only a ford puller

the puller that I can get is definitely a power steering puller with to sizes to fit over two different hubs, it is not a jaws type puller the issue is the length. I am tempted,since I can get the bolts part way out and they turn freely to just cut them off, remove the remainder and replace them. I am concerned that I don't damage the pump when I replace the pully which will have to be done when in place after being bolted back in. Does the ford puller do something special and baecomes a replacement tool?

'i' do not understand,-what are you trying to do?
"you did not indicate the engine"?
in my case(i work for a ford dealer)- 1st-remove the pressure hose
& the return hose.
remove the pump-& pulley-,as an assembly.
put pump in a vice- use puller to remove pulley.


post-back/-or pm if you still don't understand.
