What to do/repair this PS pump?
Permalink  
 


I may figured out my PS pump leak ( I thought I had fixed this, JBW to the failure), now how to repair?  Leak  from where the neck was brazed to the main housing.  ?  Can the pump be disassemble and the repair made drum the inside, if so how do you dissemble  And repair?  Any schematics?  Or do I replace with this old pump that came from a car sitting in a SD field?  I would want to verify it is good?  Or swap the housings?    Thoughts, thanks

Take both pumps to Lares and have them build you a good one.

thanks Chris.  I just finished watching a rebuild by Chris Craft.  Looks kind of like a fun project.  I wonder  if anyone including Lares would find  the problem until the pump is fully rebuilt.  There seems to be no other issues or leaks in the two years I have had the car running.  I rebuilt my SS pump about 15 years ago and no issues.  The only thing being the SS has a remote reservoir so no neck to leak.  And as I don’t know how to braze That’s a problem.  Lares is a few miles from me.  If I go to Lares,  I better take the special little shield for the belt off, as I expect I will never get it back.  It’s not reproduced as far as I know.  by the way there is a ElCamino 66 neutral saftey switch for a TH 350 that’s different than a 66 powerglide switch that you are suppose to be able tomake work with the 2004R and possibly the reverse lights.  We’ll see when I get it

Save yourself the time and hassle and follow Chris's suggestion. Lares does one thing and they do it well. Nice folks to deal with also.
