is my ps pump dead?

I recently lost all power steering in my truck and looked under the hood to find that the pully was wobbling around on the shaft and the belt wasn't connected to anything. Is this most likeley a problem with the pully? or could the pump have seized up and caused the pully to break off of the shaft?

also I noticed that there was some ps fluid on top of the resivor and the stuff inside was gummy looking (probably due to the low temps), its also a 2.7

ATF at low temps looks like juice. Unless it's well below freezing it shouldn't be gummy.

Dampness on top of the reservoir is normal for these trucks.

Try putting the pulley back on the shaft and see what happens.
