I'm going to keep this short because right now id rather roll the wife's car off a cliff as opposed to fix it so here goes:
Alternator install turned into this:
So I ordered a new one of those power steering brackets/ housing things
Removed all the goodies including the PS pulley/pump.
Put it all back together.
Snapped the install bolt putting the PS pulley back on:
My question is this...is the PS pump too far gone? At least a good 1/4" of thread is stuck in the shaft and the pulley is obviously not fully seated.
Am I ok to tap this bad bear into place using a hammer and a piece of wood or am I assed out and need to buy a new pump??
The pulley is seated well enough to where I can't wiggle it by hand but is obviously off of where it should ideally be to not fly off going down the highway.
