problems removing power steering pulley (91 4runner)

13196 4
i have a 91 4runner, 6 cyl. working on replacing the powersteering pump and i'm stuck at the pulley removal. the pulley is solid, no holes in it to wedge a wrench into or anything. the genius that designed the mount made the bolt too long to remove with the pulley on.

no matter how tight i adjust the belt, the pulley slips when i wrench on the bolt. i have tried to wedge a wrench in between the pulley and belt, but no luck.

any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I removed mine with the pulley intact. I warped the pulley trying to pull mine off & said to h*ll with it. Bought a reman unit & replaced the entire pump w/pulley. Got pics?
