Why can we directly put the tape on the thread rather than use that special tool? I got some experience to put the tape on the pipe

Are they same?

Also, how could I overstretch or tear the item? I cannot find any related topic in this PS replacement since other people don't use this special tool at all.

GOBULLGO has a spectacular aura about
Default Remove paint from inside of new pulley

In my experience when installing the new PS pulley with the tool u can rent from autozone you want to first remove the black paint from the inside of the new pulley with sand paper or dremel wire wheel.
Also spray a little bit of silicone on the pump shaft.

How did I know this? I broke the pulley tool once cause the paint on the new pulley wouldnt allow me to press on the new pulley to the new PS pump shaft. It would just go so far then refuse to push on anymore.

Lastly measure the distance between the pulley and pump so you know how fart to seat the pulley on the new pump.

I will buy the PS pump from rockauto

I also assume I don't need to buy a new pulley but I may end up buying one.

What do you mean "black paint"?

Thank you

He means that with most new pulleys, there's black paint inside the hole for the pulley shaft to go through. Not always true and not really recommended. I'd rather slather the shaft of the pump in ATF. Then press the pulley on, it'll work fine. No sanding required.

dandur805 has a little shameless behaviour in the past

That is the problem I am having. I replaced the pump and the box has a sticker on it saying the pump makes noise. No Poo-poo! As far as replacing the pulley wheel, the box that the new/reworked pump comes in has the installation bolt/washer with it and instructions on how to install the wheel. Follow them and you will have no problem. However, it is pretty much a two man job. I did it by myself but I sure wish I had the grandson with me. The removal/installation is not hard, and I made a step by step report with pictures, but can't find it. Maybe it is on the downstairs computer. If anyone needs it, e-mail me and I will dig it up. A vacuum pump is not needed, but I also have the instructions on how to do it.

If someone knows of a coating that can quiet the dang thing down, please let me know.

Using teflon tape on the threads is not effective. The teflon ring seal works to seal between the fitting and the nut on the pump body, along with the black rubber o-ring near the end of the tubing. If the teflon ring is not installed or not installed properly, you will have a keak at the fitting.

Also, using white grease on the pump shaft will make installing the pulley a bit easier.
