Help - Power steering pulley needed!

Post by songzunhuang »

I’m hoping someone in the Silicon Valley area has a line on a 3 bolt power steering pulley for my 1984 e24. After many months of repair after a mishap, I finally got my car started with the radiator installed, but my power steering pulley is badly bent.

Does anyone have one that can can get soon? Please send message - PM etc.

Thanks.

Oh well, it looks like overnight may be a stretch.
My plan is to bend the existing one the best I can for the drive home. I have purchased another from an eBay seller, but it'll take a few days to arrive. I should be able to manage until then.

Hey, I seem to recall that you are in the SanFran Bay area?
I guess it could be the same on my e24, but I couldn't tell from your link. My pulley is OEM# 84205 and is a mounted with 3 bolts and takes a v-belt. I did already purchase one on eBay and it'll be here by Monday, Sept 19th. Are if you are near Redwood City (where I work), and would be willing to let me "borrow" yours, I'd come by and get it. Then I can give it back once mine arrives.

Otherwise, my plan is to try and bend the one I have back to a serviceable state for the drive from the shop to my home.

Anyhow, the one I need looks like this.

PM me if you find it and are located within a short driving distance from Redwood City. Thanks.

The part number above for the pulley is incorrect. I'm not sure where I got that, but check yours closely before basing you research on what I have there. I am not deleting it just to keep an accurate record of what happened.

Also a weird thing is that when I goto Real OEM and so a search with my VIN, it shows a pulley without the holes. Confusing.

Just to avoid future confusion, the OE part number is for this type of Power steering pump pulley is 32-41-1-272-446. Not sure where you got 84205.
