saganaw PS pump install. Opinions? Heat affect?

i spent the second half of this afternoon mounting this up.
stole the crank pulley from a AC 1.3 and used part of the lower ac pump bracket to hold on the power steering pump. lined it up and used spacers. The pulleys are running pretty true to each other. steering shaft clearence is an issue, but my main question is about the header? its really close to the one tube. should i wrap the tube and call it good, or should i shove some more stuff inbetween? im kinda worried about the one tube getting the pump and hydraulic fluid hotter than it will already be getting.
i plan on running a big trans cooler to it also.
in general does it look AOK?
thanks.



thanks!
Zach

howdy,
i would wrap the header with some Thermo-Tec Header Wrap . i ues the 2'' x 50' Black Graphite. cost is $46.99 + shipping here's a pic of mine.

then add in the Perma-Cool Power Steering Two Pass Cooler. cost is $31.99. and now i have to do is get my power steering box and pump.

pump was off the axle donor rig. off of a 1980 345CI scout II motor. used its bracket also.
I'm not using a box. See that green thing the steering shaft is going to? thats my valve. This things going full hydraulic. Im going to use the stock resovior with a big cooler. with all the lines it should have plenty of fluid to keep it cooled down.

Re: saganaw PS pump install. Opinions? Heat affect?

I am running John Deere combine parts. The ball valve and cylinder are from a 7700 series combine. the cylinder is the exact perfect length for lock to lock on my scout D44 also. i will have rufly $150 in the whole hydraulic steering including hoses.
the valve is two valves instead of one like most valves you see, but easily mounted. the orbital valve is in that colloum in the pic, and two lines go from that to that other valve on the right which have the lines going to and from the pump, and to and from the cylinder.
