2000 Ford Ranger Question: power steering pump

With pump installed, how do I keep shaft from turning to allow me to install pulley? I do have a puller/installer tool but when I begin shaft just turns and backs bolt out of shaft? Whats the trick?? -
Answer 1
The tool should thread easily in to the threads in the shaft. Sounds like the threads could be different or has a burr. can put pulley on shaft and push down to hold and thread in but make sure are correct threads. When threaded in the installer should have a "pusher" that has a bearing in between the pusher and the front of the pulley. Hold the end of the threaded installer with a wrench and turn the pusher with another till bottoms out, remove and make sure pulley is tight on shaft and spins. -
