Default How to replace power steering pump pulley?

Have any of you ever replaced your power steering pump and therefore had to remove the pulley from the old pump and install it on the new pump (because new pumps don't include the pulley)?
Please comment only if you've successfully done this before.

The hole in the shaft on my old pump isn't threaded, but I'm hoping that the new one may be threaded on the inside so I can just use a bolt and washer to press the pulley onto the shaft.

I asked a dealer mechanic how they do it, and he said they use a "special" tool that I could rent at a tool rental place.

Thanks.

Bill...and I'm NOT speaking from Bonne experience here...but my experience was that there was a channel on the end of the pulley where it sits on the pump. Specially puller to yank it off. Reinstall is nicer because the inside of the pump shaft is threaded...you basically use a bolt to pull it back on.

Again..this is Chevy truck experience

Nope, that doesn't apply here - the shaft isn't keyed or threaded, but thanks anyway.
