    I got the piston and spring out of my spare pump. It looks like there is another very small spring inside and that the pressure relief is internal. I can't blow thru the screen either so my guess is...

    Don't forget to rent a power steering pulley puller.

    Just noted the photo, thanks. Yes, remove the stud too, not just the nut. The tube needs more freedom to move before it will disengage from the mating flanges on each end, I think.
