Thanks for your comments. I don't have the equipment to support/remove the bolster (loader is on the M!)so I'll put off the PS install. But from what you guys are saying I can't even get the alternator belt off w/o moving the bolster forward to remove the hand crank/ratchet. Is that right?

The hand crank ratchet is SUPPOSED to retract into the bolster far enough so it is FLUSH and will not interfere. Use copious amounts of penetrating oil, a hammer, and a pry bar, and a whole lot of patience,and see if you can get that thing to move
The alternator belt is supposed to fit over a pulley on the water pump. You will need to remove the fan belt first, and then you can remove the alternator belt. Both of those belts will need to come off OVER the fan. It CAN be done.
You've already got extra pulleys on the crankshaft, why not use one of them for the power steering pump?

Thanks for the info. I"ll get out the pb blaster and tools and see if I can move the ratchet. Good question about the pulley. The pulleys that are on there now are smaller than the char lynn pulley so the pump won"t produce as much pressure if I use them. That"s why I wanted to put on the char lynn pulley but given the hassle of removing bolster I"ll give that a try assuming I get the ratchet to move.
