Power steering pump.

Yuck.


A quick dip in the parts washer


Pull the bearing off the shaft.


Disassembled, waiting on new O-Rings etc from McMaster Carr.


Pull the old seal out. While the scratches you can see in the pic are on the bearing race, I did manage to score the machined face where the seal goes more than I would have liked.



Don't do what I did, install the new seal in the correct orientation. Install the new bearing on the shaft (I used a socket and a hammer) and insert into the housing. Be sure that the Snap Ring fits into the groove properly.


Re-insert the pump mechanism onto the shaft, and refit the rear housing. Use new O-Rings of course, and plenty of lube during reassembly.

I had good luck with a harbor freight bearing splitter recently, although the bearings in question were in a transmission. Your bearings appear smaller and the kit should fit.

I just ordered this from Amazon to do the alternator. I was hoping that the $11 puller I bought at Northern Tool yesterday, would have worked for both the PAS pump and the Alternator but alas, it did not.

The fins interfered with the puller on the front bearing, but I still managed to remove it with the tool I linked to above, and a little bit of persuasion.



The rear one was easy.


With the bearings removed, the Rotor has no moving parts so I gave the fans/fins on each end a light blasting and a dusting of paint to improve their appearance as well as slow down the rust so they dont rot and fall apart. I have no idea if I have completely ruined this thing or not, but time will tell. I know I will need to sand off some of the paint on the housing as that and the bracket are used for the ground.
