NICE! Pump died on the CJ last week, and Tuesday night I hear a groan coming from the Power Steering on the ZJ. There's a pinhole leak in my pressure line that has showered the engine bay.
Picked up a new hose, no big deal, but also picked up a rebuild kit for the CJ Pump. Anyone ever rebuilt a pump before? rebuild kit was $14, pump was $40, Pump and Resivoir is $60. So with the cost saving and my curiosity for tearing things apart to understand how they work, I thought I'd rebuild it.
Always did get in trouble as a kid for tearing apart my new toys to see what made them tick. Guess that's why my parent bought me an Erector Set for my 6th birthday.
Anyway, any special tips or tricks on rebuilding the Pump? about all I've seen/heard is that the resivoir is pretty thin stamped steel so be careful with it.
