I need a replacement power steering pump nut for the power steering pump

Hmmm...the pulley and shaft are splined for the torque requirements, using the M12 x 1.2mm x 19mm drive locknut only to hold in place laterally. So ANY 12x1.25 will work; just adda washer to mate against the pulley nicely. The OE with built-in waher is available for about $8 from Dorman...or less from a good hardware store. (Note: 19mm=3/4", but a larger drive would be fine.)
