    It must be because so many people bend them like just did... Does anyone know of any other pulleys that I can swap it out with?

    Ebay has some for sale, but are pricey, and all my local autoparts dont sell them. Pick and pull was filled mustangs with power steering pump pulley.

    Was just on wazee.com ordering a idler pulley and noticed they were pre-selling power steering pulleys. Not sure how their price compares to what you're seeing out there but their price was $87.99 for a billet pulley.

    That preorder is kind of a joke.... I ordered one in like February I think it was still nothing. They did take the full payment tho for idler tensioner and power steering. So I better get it some day...

    There is absolutely no pulley that will swap on to the 94-95 power steering pump.
    You have four options
    1. Find one on ebay or in a junkyard they are definitely out there ( I have two spares but unfortunately they are not for sale )
    2. Get a pulley made http://wazees.com/
    3. put a manual rack in your car
    4. Bend your pulley back while it is on the car. I did this to mine and it worked for a few thousand miles until I found one
    just spin the pulley around and find out which spoke is bent. I used a flathead screwdriver and hammer to bend the spokes until my pulley no longer wobbled.

    good luck on your search for a pulley

    Dang. I ordered the idler pulley a couple weeks back. I received it within about a week. Wonder if they are holding off on sending yours until the PS pulley is done.

    They already sent the idler and tensioner I ordered. Pretty quick actually. But never have heard anything on the steering pump pulley.

    I'd be interested. I already have the idler, but I'd be interested in the rest.

    Whoo. So in the midst of me being upset of pulley taking forever. I got the email yesterday that it shipped. I'm definitely doing everything I can to get my stock one off off safely. Seems like something someone will need.

    Road race guys have been running 3.8 p/s pulleys because they don't foam as much. Just FYI, so there is an option if you have nothing. But I don't know the 94/95 details, I've seen this on many fox 5.0s, but only a few SNs. Let me see if I can find some more details on this.

    damn I can't decide what to do. A big part of the problem I the crank/vortech pulley has two belts on it does anyone make one for that?
