power steering pump seal kit

Post by 850oldschool »

I've seen these kits for sale in several places:

Edelmann 8794
Gates 348372

Both are in the 5-10 dollar range. I'm thinking that if you don't run the pump dry for an extended period, the only thing that fails is the shaft seal and o-rings. Mine is quiet and still works well, but there is a very slow yet steady drip on the alternator. This, of course, will most likely result in a dead battery/no start at the most inconvenient time possible.

A little quick searching here and on google hasn't turned up a DIY PS pump rebuild tutorial. The pump looks only a little more complicated than a stone axe.

Anybody done it?

The Gates kit is also listed for a large swath of 90's GM products, as well as a lot of Jeep models from that era. Also the last couple of years of Volvo 240's.

Still no luck finding a DIY or a parts diagram.
