Re: 93 taurus power steering

There is no other way. One must have a pulley remover and installer (can be purchased @ local auto parts store or Sears). Then you must remove the 3 bolts holding it onto the bracket. Remove the high pressure line and return line.

As a veteran of taurus power steering hell, what exactly is your problem? If you don't have a puller, you can pull the pump off with the bracket But you will then have to have the pulley taken off at the parts store.
Where is it leaking? You can replace the gasket on the plastic reservoirs. (Large O ring about 3" in diameter or so). The low side hose sometimes leaks at the crimp. You either have to replace the whole hose ($$) or grind the crimp off and put on a short length of hose. You can put new o rings on the high side fitting (at least i did on my 90). You need to know where its leaking first.
The hoses by the rack are gross leakers too. I had the high side large hose by the rack weep only under turning pressure. You might have to degrease all the hoses clean and then look for fresh leaks to determine where its leaking. Don't be too quick to replace the pump for a leak. Harbor Freight does sell cheapo pulley pullers if you want to buy one. Not a high end tool, but i used one on mine. Good luck.
