Question power steering pump pulley

I bought a used power steering pump from a salvage yard and the pulley came with the pump but wasn't on the shaft. Inside the shaft is threaded but I can't tell what size bolt to use and was wondering if anyone knew what the thread size is?

If your asking this question cause you need to get the pulley off, I would suggest you go to an autoparts store and rent a power steering pulley removal/installation tool. Its usually free and will save you a lot of trouble.

No, I need to put one back on.

Then you need an installation tool. If you try it with just a bolt and washers, the threads will pull out of the pump shaft.
The tool has a bearing that is pushed by a fine thread pusher thing.

Is this some kind of special tool that is going to be hard to find, or will a regular pulley puller work?

You need to use the installation tool. Don't use a bolt in the shaft. It puts too much stress on the threads, you will ruin the new pump.
