W108 V8 Power Steering Pump

I've got a '72 280SEL 4.5 that needs a power steering pump replacement. I have some manuals that show a puller necessary to remove the pump pulley. Anyone have a source for the factory puller or another type that is suitable?

I used a pitman arm puller from a local parts store. I had to grind open the tool and thin in out some on the bench grinder to make it fit. Worked like a charm though. The tool needs to be quite thin to fit in between the groove on the pulley so I tensioned it which a wrench (not an impact) then began to tap on it with a hammer a few times, tensioned again and tap. Before I new it the pulley was off the pump.
