PS Pump replacement tips?

This is on a v belt truck. About to replace ps pump (and what a sweet hell it was to find one). Any tips on the process or other things that should be done while in there? Last one I did was on my '94 90 and that was about 15 years ago.
Thanks

Short of spending big money at AB (>$300) or bigger at RN they appear to not be being rebuilt by the people that supply conventional car part retailers.

I seem to remember the same thing. Seems obvious to do the lines at the same time. I seem to remember wishing I'd pulled the radiator last time.

At least do the high pressure line, maybe wait on the others.

You didn't state the vehicle you are working on.
Just that it had a V belt.

Just did this in January. I found my pump on ebay… new for 160 shipped.

It's a pain but not difficult. You don't need to pull the rad. I pulled the alt and you may want to pull the dizzy. The bolt in the back is a pain to get to.

Have a big catch pan for all the PS fluid you'll loose.

I always have a hard time getting the belt tensioned properly. Never can find a good leverage point.

Yup, big catch pan is a must. Clean inside the engine bay thoroughly for splashed fluid and follow procedures for proper bleeding.

And what a waste of all that power steering fluid that burns so well in the diesel fuel tank.
Have done the V8 PS pump many times and the parts are not too hard to find, pulley swaps easy and bolts right in.
