Are you putting the power steering belt back on ?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
YES. i INSTALLED A NEW WATER PUMP. ALL I NEED TO DO IS GET THE DANG BELT BACK ON   ROUNS ON CRANK PULLEY, OVER WATER PUMP PULLEY AND AROUND THE P/S PUMP PULLEY. THE P/S PUMP HAS A BRACKET IN FRONT OF IT THAT HAS THE ADJUSTING SCREW
Expert:  Tom replied 8 years ago.
Ok this is what you do tighten the power steering back up its probrably seized the adjuster then turn the crank bolt clockwise and walk the belt on

No problem
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
THIS DID NOT WORK EITHER.   I TOOK THE ADJUSTER APART COMPLETELY. I PUT A BLOCK AGAINST THE FIREWALL AND USED A 30 INCHE PRY BAR AGAINST WHERE THE ADJUSTING SCREW ANCHOR BOLTS INTO TH P/S PUMP. I MOVED MAYBE A QUARTER INCH. I HAVE ALOT MORE LEVRAGE BUT DONT WANT TO BREAK SOMETHING. I SOAKED EVERYTHING WITH PB BLASTER AND WILL TRY AGAIN IN A LIL WHILE. WILL LET YOU KNOW.   AT THIS POINT IT IS STILL IMPOSSIBLE TO WALK THE BELT ON    NO WAY
