I replaced the PS pump on my '64 recently. I got a rebuilt
pump from Kragen. All I needed to do is install the old fluid canister and
reinstall the pump. I did not need to use a puller for anything. I did have to
give them the old core.

If it is like most power steering pumps, you'll need a puller to take it
off and then it has to be pressed back on. Auto-Zonne will lend you the tools
that you need for free. You must 'buy ' it with a credit card or cash and then
just give you back the money or credit back your card when you take it back.
They are not fun to take off or put on.

I removed the power steering pump on a 383 1966 Newport a couple of years
As I recall it was not especially demanding, just a real pain in the
lower back if you get what I mean. One of those not ergonomic
I do not think I had to remove anything to get the pump out. A 1964
Imperial may be different.

IML: 1964 Imperial power steering pump
Date: Wed, 12 Mar 2008 12:26:09
I need to remove the power steering pump from my 64
Imperial. I was looking it over a few weeks ago in my garage.
I've been pretty busy since that time now, and don't have a good mental
picture in my head. How much hardware do I need to remove to get the
pump out ? My pump leaks. That is why I am taking it out.
Right now, there is no fluid in the pump when I take off the lid and look
inside. The cardboard under my car has it all absorbed from the drips
over the last 5 1/2 months. I have never removed a power steering pump
before. I am an amateur back yard mechanic who does oil changes and
anti freeze flushes and disc brake jobs myself. I am sure I have the
necessary skills and probably all the tools to do this myself. I am
going to have my pump "rebuilt" with new seals. I have someone lined
up to do this already; I just need to get it removed soon so I can have it
fixed. Thanks for any and all advice. This will be my 1st
attempt at doing any of my own work on my own Imperial. Hopefully this
will build my confidence.....we'll see.
