I've done a few. They aren't too bad. As you mentioned, the power steering pump needs to be removed.

thanks, I assume it slides off a shared shaft of the water pump pulley? is it necessary to remove hi/ lo pressure lines? to remove completly or just leave floating?? thanks again for the help. Roger

If you look closely, you'll see two T25 screws that holds the power steering pulley to the water pump drive.

I've always removed both lines to make it easier.
