I used house brand “power steering fluid”, fluid is not my issue, after my hydroboost conversion I got the issue
from what i hear it is, ive got a decent amount of money and time into this system and id like to get it perfected if possible, and id imagine the most reman pumps are just really tossed together and put new seals in and shipped. i just received a new pump, unsure who rebuilt it and how its going to work but its already fitted with AN's and i just have to bolt it on and see what happens.That's pretty common. Hydroboost conversoins tend to uncover lots of pumps that can handle steering just fine, but can't do steering and braking.
From what I've read, not one of the parts house pumps are up to the task either. If it were me, I'd make sure I had a pump that at least worked out of the box before I stared tapping for AN fittings and stuff. .....Or just say ''screw it'' and go vacuum (like I actually did).
ill keep that name in mind just incase i need it down the road, i just got a new pump already fitted and ready to go, even polished! not that it matters but my dad started up this "polished" thing under my hood and i seem to be stuck with it now so why not. going to post up my new toys here in a bit.My cardone pump lasted just a few weeks before it went. I sent the pump to Lee Power Steering in CA to have them rebuild it. They rebuild the old pump and put a pressure valve in to handle the hydro boost system. Also got an in-line filter for it. They can put the AN fittings on the pump or you can get it with the stock setup.

All the 86/87 PS pumps are CCW. I’m not sure what the fitting thread is for the pressure side. I have some metric Oring to AN fittings here I want to see if they fit my other PS pump. The rebuilt pump I got back from Lee Power Steering has been working good so far.well it has seemed to all fall apart, am i the only one who has a CCW rotation P/S pump on their car? cant seem to find a fitted pump that is that rotation... slightly mad right now.. but its only my fault for not really doing my research. any suggestions? id rather not go back to a stock pump because i cant seem to get good threads in the pump for my fitting. almost out of options.
If you don't mind taking the pump apart, the cam ring can be flipped over to reverse the pump rotation. That is if the Type-II pump uses the same basic design:well it has seemed to all fall apart, am i the only one who has a CCW rotation P/S pump on their car? cant seem to find a fitted pump that is that rotation... slightly mad right now.. but its only my fault for not really doing my research. any suggestions?
im talking with a guy now about why cant we just pull the pump apart and reverse the rotation? cant be that complex for a power steering pump... dont got nothing to lose at this point. but i actually might try that. what style pump are you talking about if it uses the same basic design as what other pump? i wish i would of kept that pump i broke and it would of been perfect to take apart and see.If you don't mind taking the pump apart, the cam ring can be flipped over to reverse the pump rotation.

Where did you install the cooler? any pictures?i looked at the vacuum set ups and ended up going to h.boost, i modified a reservoir from TR parts and added a separate return and also a cooler to slow the flow down, it works but i just think i have a leaky return hose which is sucking air, i also believe i removed the factory pump and feed hose so i think its time for a upgrade. i got a tap coming today and going to hit the parts store for some JIC fittings and try an get this thing buttoned up. on the next note i need to go in a tighten every intercooler bolt and bracket...... anyone have a front mount IC laying around willing to part for cheap? lol worth a try anyway.... would like to clear up some room in the front of this motor and stop tightening these bolts every damn day...
The diagram of the pump I posted is from the factory service manual ('87). Note that the pump you purchased is listed as the same, from Summits web site:nevermind i see TC series.
Now that’s what I’m talking about. It’s goin to be attempted, it’s only money anyway. Me and 87national are gonna test and see. Thanks man!The diagram of the pump I posted is from the factory service manual ('87). Note that the pump you purchased is listed as the same, from Summits web site:
Power Steering Pump Model: GM Type 2 (Saginaw TC series)
Which if it is, a flip of the cam ring will change it to a reverse rotation pump.
