Just want to make sure before I use this tool

I need to replace the power steering pump/reservoir on my 92' Ranger XLT with 2.9 V6. I already read up on it and I pretty much know what I need to do. I'm using the OEM #27031 pulley puller/installer kit.

Mainly, I am concerned with PULLING the pulley.

I also watched a video of a guy using the tool. The instructions on the loaner tool are a little confusing. The puller tool is pictured.

1. See the pressure tip on the other end of the square nut in the photo. Is that the end of the puller that anchors against the pump shaft end? The threaded screw is too wide to thread into the pump shaft. I think the threaded part is for turning the collared pressure flange to pull out the pulley. The guy in the video is moving kind of fast. But it looks like that is how he is doing it.

2. Also the instructions say to use oil on the threads. And the guy in the video also sprayed lubricant on the pump shaft before installing the pulley. What oil do I use? I have 3-in-1 and motor oil at home. Will those work?

Just Google "power steering pump puller kit" and you will see lots a videos about it's use.
Watch a couple of them.

Hopefully you have more than you showed in the picture,
That should get it off but will not be used for installing it.

Any oil can be used it is just to help things slide instead of binding.

Correct, there are more tools in the kit. I only pictured that one because I was unsure of which end mates with the shaft end for the PULLER.

I went to two auto parts stores over the weekend. They both agreed with me that the pressure tip mates against the power steering shaft end. The threaded portion does not go into the shaft. The threads are for tightening the nut on the puller tool. The install tool does thread into the shaft.

I was doing this repair today and ran into a problem. I'll post separately.

Just wanted to say I completed the repairs. The pulley install and removal tools both worked like a charm. No problem with that.
