Power steering pump rebuild: confirming source
#1
There are several good, but old, threads on p/s pump rebuilds. I’d thought I’d do it myself but by the time I’d build the proper shop with tools to do it, it would definitely be cheaper to find someone to do it for me.

After a very strong recommendation, but from 2009, I followed up with Stanger in San Antonio. Happy to report they’re still in business. Don’t be put off by the website (it’s dated ‘08).

I used them in the past, they did a great job! Very recommended, I think I paid $88 for a complete rebuilt with choice of color!

What makes you want to rebuild your pump?  Curious because I think mine is dead.

Mine is full of fluid, I think I bled the air out of the system correctly, it doesn't leak, it doesn't groan or whine.  It just does not help with turning the wheels.

I don't think itt is generating enough pressure to help.  Anyone else agree?

If it is not leaking and not making a noise should be pumping. It is a positive displacement pump unless it has eaten up the components inside not much can go wrong but leak.
BTW the pulley size on 73 is smaller diameter for some reason I guess they wanted to speed it up. With PS you should have no effort in steering the car.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

When I installed the PS hoses I bled per the instructions by dumping the return hose into a waste container and cranking the engine until clean fluid came out.  It was pumping then, but not a lot of volume.  But, the car was not running, just cranking..

Mine's a leaker. Major.

Hallelujah! Got a call today: my p/s pump is ready. I thought it was taking longer but I guess two months isn't bad, plus it kept me from trying to do anything in the 100+ degree desert heat. Nice to know the internals were in "great shape"; needed nothing but a thorough clean, new gaskets and a bit of polish. $99. Hard to complain about that.

And now... once it arrives, I can get to work.

It took mine even longer than that. The guy is really busy but does nice work and it was worth the wait!

Agreed! A month ahead of expectations, too. And very fairly priced!
