Pulleys are pressed on, they have a special puller that you buy, harbor freight has them, most local parts stores can get then or they have them in stock.

Buy a new power steering pump with the pulley already on it or get one from a junkyard. Turn in the old one for the core charge or throw it away and be done with it. Hope that helps! Jim
