"Thank you Russ! If someone has photos showing them installed, I’d be grateful! Russ, I originally painted the block Cadillac blue but didn’t like the colour combo so I went with something I liked better."

My power steering belt pulley sheered the woodruff key off the pump shaft and is pretty wrecked. Does anybody have a pulley for sale? Or the whole pump and pulley together?
