How to remove air pump pully

Asked by Nov 23, 2011 at 03:43 PM about the Chevrolet Chevy Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

To replace water pump on '87 G-20 chevy van 305, I have to remove the air pump pully to access a bracket that holds the water pump from removal.  How do I remove the air pump pully?

2 Answers


buy a cheap pulley removal/installer tool from harbor freight for 10 bucks

The pulley in question has three nuts or bolts and to get them loose, I need to wedge the pully, that being done, there is a big bolt going through the bracket that I will access when the air pump pulley is removed. My question is once this bizarre bracket is removed and I have replaced the water pump, how do I keep these units from falling off befor I can replace all the nuts and Bolts?
