Kick PS - Early vs. Late Differences ??

Does anyone know exactly what are the differences between the early and late model Kick PS setups are?
I know they changed somewhere in the mid 90's. Early had a steel PS pump and late had an aluminum pump (both made by KYB). The later have a pressed on pulley (I'm told they are not replaceable, unlike the early models). Are the steering boxes the same? I'm running a 91 setup and just picked up a 96 box for a spare...

Both boxes are the same. Bob said the aluminum pump should be better, at least run cooler.

Re: Kick PS - Early vs. Late Differences ??

Thanks YT & YB.....

Here's a pic of the 2 pumps side by side.... The aluminum pump is significantly larger (overall dimensions). I wonder if it's output is better?

The other difference is that the low pressure hose is larger in diameter.......

Good to know that the boxes are the same... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I was told that the pulley on the aluminum pump is non-removeable... Is this true?

Re: Kick PS - Early vs. Late Differences ??

Might be more output on it too. Interesting. I know the one on the GV is bigger than the Kicks. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] I'll push GV engine components anyday. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

How come that pump you got looks like brand new?
