[DML] Re: Water pump pulley. Or, how do I get the @^#$^% thing off.


Heat the pulley near the shaft with a torch or a VERY hot heat gun.
the aluminum pulley will expand around the shaft area and vertually 
fall off. just be sure to keep the heat consentrated on the pulley 
center and keep moving it around the shaft. Once it is off, just let 
it cool down and you will be ready to press it on the new pump. It 
also helps if you have a helper hold the pump by the pulley edges 
with a couple pairs of pliers while heating it. As it heats up the 
water pump should drop out the bottom.

The other alternative is to just buy a new pump assembly w/ a new 
pretty Gold pulley and be done with it.
