Toy power stearing leak ?

Got a friend with the toy steering. It seems that the pump is building too much pressure behind the shaft seal. (pump shaft seal)
He tried another pump and had the same problem. Sent the pump out to a shop that rebuilds steering pumps. He even went to
the dealer and got the pump seal kit. $ 50.00 for the kit, $ 60.00 for the rebuild. And still the shaft seal is leaking. The shaft has no
wear that would let the seal leak. The only thing I have seen on his rig, is the pully at the crank is just a bit larger than the other
pully I have seen on other Zuks. ( The belt is only 3/4" longer than the others are running)
I checked the lines for blockage or kinked line.

Has anyone had this trouble ?
Could the larger pully cause the pump to build too much pressure ??

Thanks

Re: Toy power stearing leak ?


A larger pulley would actually be easier on the pump and seals.

Its possible the rebuild wasn't done properly, or that something is out of balance and causes a wobble that eats through seals (sorta like guys who gp through axles seals all the time and can't figure out why... its always a bent housing that is undetectible by the eye). I haven't heard of that experience before and we and friend have been running Toy pumps for 6-7 years now. Maybe the pulley is out of balance? Maybe the belt is too tight and stresses one side of the seal more than the other? Maybe things aren't lined up properly and that's pulling the pulley to far to one side?

Re: Toy power stearing leak ?

Thanks Glenn ! We have tryed to lossen the belt, This just causes it to slip. I put a straight edge on the pully's, they line up just right.
As for the brackets- They all look ok and are good and tight. The stumper of this is we installed the second pump and it did the same. =(
Im going over Friday to take a close look 1 more time.

If anyone else has some info let us know.
Thanks

Re: Toy power stearing leak ?

The shaft may have worn a groove in it that is causing the leak. I've seen this on balancers before.You may need to get a new shaft or re-sleave it. Just a thought.
