Default How hard is it to replace a power steering pump?

I see that I will need a pulley puller and installer 30 bucks from autozone.
Pump is 53 bucks. Gaskit kit 15 bucks. is there any other specialty tools or parts I will need. I have done plenty of basic installs/repairs is it pretty self explainatory just looks like I have to take off the lines, remove the belt, remove mounting bolts, put the old pulley on the new pump. put the new one in flush the sytem reattatch the lines. replace fluid and bleed sytem. am I right any idea on how long I figure well under 3 hours.

The lines are kinda of a pita but if youre pulling the pulley off it might make it easier. I never have, I usually just use a crow's foot. It's pretty straight forward. The lines pretty much flush themselves all I ever doo is reconnect the lines fill it up and let it run for a while to purge the air, refill, turn the wheel lock to lock a few times and refill again. And then after you drive it the first time recheck and after a week recheck again. The air will work itself out slow sometimes.

Only if they're real rusty and nasty. They'll probably break from bending around if they are.
