So whats the difference between the MS ps pulley and the stock ps pulley?

You said they're the same diameter.

The MS power steering pulley is machined differently in order to allow for off the shelf belts to be used, rather than proprietary belts.

Just spoke on the phone with you - the pulleys provided replace both the stock crank pulley and power steering.

Just installed a dinan pulley...couple of things.

You may have some trouble getting the fan out since there is a clip that holds a hose which won't readily come out.

Bottom of the fan...



The hoses...



You don't have to get under the car to reattach the hoses in their clips.

You do have to remove the center idler pulley because you can't get the belts off due to the silver pipes...



You'll need to keep turning the bolt, there's a retainer ring between the engine and pulley that prevents the bolt from sliding out once it is unthreaded from the block...



I would highly recommend removing the upper radiator hose to get the fan out unharmed. I broke the clip...removing the radiator hose is fast, pretty easy and spills only a small amount of coolant. I would use a bag or something under the hose and opening in the radiator to keep things neat.

Otherwise, took me about an hour which includes fishing out a socket that I dropped.
