When I pulled the pulley off my 200 it took some work. The four bolts should release it it from the shaft. I actually broke it a little by prying on it. It was a delicate procedure though because the front cover is very thin. You certainly don't want to put too much pressure on that. I replaced the pulley with the three groove variety.

use the right tool! A pulley puller...if you don't have one you should be able to rent one from an Auto store near you.

So the 4 bolts are all that holds it?

Yes. Just the four bolts and rust.

I ended up breaking the pulley with the 3 jaw puller. Sorry.

So this seems like a super simple project, and yet every time I start again, it begins to kick my butt.

I've got the pump, steering box, drop arm, pulley, and drive belts in place. Now all I've got left is lines/hoses and the reservoir. For the life of me, I cannot figure out where the two longer, hard lines go. One is res to pump and the other is box to res. Do they run behind the front chassis cross-member? They seem to be formed to pass around something, but I just cannot seem to figure out where they go.

Ok. I think I've got it.... The hoses go in from the TOP.

So I got all of the power steering components installed last night, and everything seems to be working well. I didn't even notice fluid gushing out of anything. I did get the drop arm on wrong. I guess I didn't correctly center the box (or perhaps I turned it when hooking up the steering shaft, I don't know) so now I can only make right turns. (I didn't actually drive it).

The only other thing I've noticed is that it seems that the fan blades rub the power steering adjuster pulley, but only when the engine is running. There really aren't any adjustments for the brackets that hold everything in place.

Does any one have any ideas of how to keep this from happening? I mean there is like a foot between the radiator and the fan on these things, you'd think they'd have moved the the fan a little farther forward.

Picture? The fan should not be anywhere near the pulleys.

How about shots inline with the belts. Is the PS pulley properly aligned with the crank pulley? a straight edge on one should match the other.

It's hard to get a good shot. I may have to remove the metal shroud.

Also, now that I look at it, the fan has been hitting stuff all along. I'm thinking the army or air force or whatever might not have put everything together correctly when they replaced the engine.

It looks like the fan is tilting back. Is it angled?

Here is a similar shot on mine.

That fan blade looks pretty well aligned from what I can tell, I doesn't seem to be tilting. I moved it all around just now, I think I think I have new clue. Only one blade hits anything. I'm wondering if the blade is warped somehow or maybe defectively molded. I'll inspect it more closely to make sure it just isn't installed incorrectly, like maybe missing a washer or something. If that's even possible.

Fans are cheap anyway.... Or you could leave it off for now. The chance of the rusty old viscous unit working is about 2%.

Lol. I was just thinking about that. It does look pretty rough and rusty. Rovahfarm has the fan for $27 and the viscous for $75. There are already chunks out of the offending blade, I might just attempt to "clearance" it a bit for now, until I can replace it.

So it looks like I've got the with a/c or with 200tdi six blade fan, instead of the normal four blade. I'm assuming that is because they expected the FFRs to be sitting around in fast idle for hours at a time.

I thought the 6 blade was normal. Yours does not look to be formed right or is warped. Here is what mine had, 7 blades.

Okay, I looked at the part catalog. The 4 blade is for a fixed fan. The 7 blade is for a viscous unit.
