PS box

I just got the chev motor in my jeep. (well a while ago)

But I just cleaned out the shop completely.. and I go back in there this morning and there's a puddle of PS fluid.

GRr, WHY ME?

So, I'm pretty sure its because the front and back of the PS case are begining to separate.. can I just use a propane torch and fill it with solder? Or should I see if I can get the old jeep one I have kicking aorund to go back in there and fit in the chevy bracket?

[/ QUOTE ]1. Only if you want to ruin it further.
2. The old PS box should be pure Saginaw,
3. And fit.
4. Then you've got a spare you can[*]Take apart[*]weld up[*]rebuild[*]And have a spare.

Re: PS box

Someone said to solder it because it would be easier.
Bleh.

It will take MORE time to get it out, solder it, and put it back in.. so ya.. I may as well replace it with the jeep box and then rebuild it.

I don't like how hte bracket is attached the the PS pump.. instead of the PS to the bracket.. means you have to pull the whole bracket/AC assembly out just to get the stupid thing out

OK, I want a time out right here!!!!

Lets get real simple with terms.

1. PS Pump is the part mounted on the motor that pumps fluid.

2. PS Gear is the part that actually moves the steering linkagel.

If the "Pump" is leaking... kewl it's really easy to rebuild a pump.

Are we talking steering gear box??

That's not so simple to rebuild.

What???

Does it look like a copper water pipe?

This is beyond luck... but...

Good Luck

Re: PS box

No I'm sure i've used that word before.

It's the pump.. mounted on the engine.. they look identical.. use the same output/inputs..

I've got a spare.. so I'll see if it fits.

the sad thing is.. i already driained the fluid on the floor once.. and now its leaking with nothing in it.
