You could put the pump and pulley in the freezer overnight. Then take a torch to the pulley, right around the shaft, but not on the shaft. That may do it.

The pumps are replaceable, but the pulleys are not.

Okay. That is I guess a way to do that. But how to remove the pulley and not ruin the pump? There has to be a way to take it apart and overhaul the pump.

I do use a pneumatic impact hammer. A few whacks on the end of the threaded stud, and the pulley pops off.

This is with the pump on the ground, and it will ruin the pump.

I believe Russ had indicated he had removed them with an impact hammer. After I warped my first pulley 15+ years ago I have only sold the pumps with the pulley. Too bad there is no groove to simply remove it with a pulley puller. Bad design!

A normal pulley puller/extractor won't work here. Any suggestions? Pictures?

Comment by Anders on November 11, 2016 at 2:19pm

How to remove the pulley from the pump? Most pumps do have a flange but original pulleys don't have that. So is there a special extractor to use?

And a bit more info I had posted:

I did find the info on the power steering pump cooler added for 1964 in the Oct 63, pg 49 serviceman bulletin
...and a previous memo about the high pressure hose, but nothing about the pulley.
 
And another note:
 
Thanks David, that helps to confirm that perhaps that were available at various times in 1963 also. I've got 2 on hand took a closer look today and here is what I have when I take the wire impact brush and look at color:
Vented Pump 1 - pulley blue, pump itself black, pump bracket black Vented Pump 2 - pulley blue, pump itself blue, pump bracket black.
The crank and water pump pulleys have always been blue on the ones I've brought in and feel pretty good about those always being blue. Of course I see them painted later everything from Ford Blue to black! LOL

Notes Carried over form the Multiply Site:

I like to think I've figured out quite a bit about the 63 & 64 Cadillacs in terms of what's correct, what's not, what was changed, when and why. 

As I'm putting my engine back together, I'm running head first into an area I never really figured out...or if I did I have forgotten.  1964 Cadillacs came with either a solid power steering pump pulley or a vented one. It has been my experience that there were many more produced with the solid pulley and that solid pulley was almost always painted black.  I have seen probably 6 to 8 vented one from the 34 or so 63's and 64's I've owned or parted out. I don't recall any on 63's I've pulled in but my sample of 63's (9 vs 29) is smaller and maybe I've just not pulled any in. 

In addition you will see literature and ads with the vented pulley like the one I posted below, and many advertisements, etc with the solid pulley.

Some of the guesses way back on the MSN boards I use to help manage  were:

- vented ones were used on AC equipped cars (or vice versa) - vented ones were used on certain body series. - vented ones were used after (or before) a specific production #

It has been my observation that they were used on both AC and non-AC cars, they were spread across different body styles (e.g. 62 series, DeVilles, and Fleetwoods) and I have not been able to come up with rhyme or reason in terms of production #'s that used them.  My guess is they had an early plan to use the vented ones, and simply switched over to the solid ones at some point...but that's just a guess.

Perhaps there is info on this written somewhere.  I don't think it is in the Serviceman Bulletins. Either way I would love to know the history so if you have ideas or knowledge let me know. I've got 3 versions of the Master Parts book (67, 68 & 69) and will check that out again to see if it sheds any light.

Hey guys hope you’re having a great day. I have a question about the choke heater tube. Mine is loose at the intake and seems to be causing a vacuum leak. Any thoughts on how to seal this up?

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
