Default 01 Power Steering Pump

I have a 01 PT where the pump pulley (plastic) broke off the car. I got the old one out and got a reman one from Napa with a new pulley (plastic again).

So I am trying to put the plastic pulley on the shaft of the reman pump and its more than fighting. The pump looks true and the sleeve is new, but it is going on crooked and boring out the sleeve some to go onto the pump.

This is the second pulley I have tried on this pump as the first one shattered into 10 pieces. So I am being extra careful with this one.

My question is, is there a trick to putting these pulleys on? A special tool or something?

Thanks for all your help.

There is a special tool to do this. You will need a power steering pulley tool. It should have a stud that threads into the pump shaft, a washer, a bearing and a big nut looking piece. You have to pull the pulley on to the shaft with the tool. I think Autozone might have one. They have a tool loan program.
