Aftermarket Power Steering Pump

Anyone know of any aftermarket power steering pumps that would work on my 68
fastback? The original-type leaky rebuilt POS isn't going to make it for
me. I want it out of there.

I'd like something better, and hopefully, smaller and lighter. And, no,
before anyone suggests it, I'm not doing away with the power steering. That
isn't an option for me with that 390 in there.

You have a Saginaw pump, right? I think this will work but it might be best
to call them to be sure.

Thanks, that would be perfect if it works as I already have March underdrive
pullies in there!

Something like they offer seems more the speed for the rest of the effort
put into Trouble. Keeping that old style pump in there this long is kinda
the putting perfume on a pig logic right? I'd look at hotrod sites and mags
cause they have to have all sorts of pumps from here to eternitiy.

Here's the same pump with another price.

Everything else I came across on a quick search was brand X and caused foul
symptoms.

Re: Aftermarket Power Steering Pump

Several of my friends use Profile or Sweet pumps (check on Howe, too)
http://www.howeracing.com/Steering/I...-AlumSteel.htm
on their race cars - all seem to work well.
I still use an aincent Perfect Circle pump on my Mopar hillclimber -
underdriven about 35%, and still keeps up with a Mustang rack with a 1.5/1
quickener.
And I'd like 5 minutes in the alley with the nimrod what designed the
plastic reservior late(r) Ford pump - an original POS if there ever was
one......

About the best pump is a Saginaw "canned ham" type. Many Fords came with
them so finding useable brackets should not be a problem. My 79 Ford E250
has one and my Dodge pickup has one. Even my 91 Isuzu has one factory
installed. They are very common on most older GM cars and trucks. If you
check out the 4X4 groups you can find lots of info on them.

Oh Big, Great and Powerful Al, how hard is it to fangle one O these to stock
1968 302 brackerackertry? I have an outrageous hankerin' to kill kill kill
the stock leaky sumbitch that's on there, and I don't want another. I mean,
how many decades must a man have to endure leaky PS pumps?

Just look at the early Bronco pages. They are almost all 302 powered. Some
years back I belonged to the ABC's. http://www.azbronco.org/9709trip.htm My
Bronco is the one all the way on the right of the first picture, and I'm the
guy on the far right in the picture titled, "Bradshaw's grave, for whom the
Bradshaw mountains are named." Anyway, this was a very popular conversion.

Re: Aftermarket Power Steering Pump

March has a really fancy saginaw which fits well with their pulley
system decor. I think they will sell you brackets and all (for the
usual premium - but on your car, it would look very nice I think.

Re: Aftermarket Power Steering Pump

I would concur with Big Al and others that the Saginaw is about the best of
the OE pumps - and my racin' buddies have used 'em for years.
The issue that I have with all the OE, integral reservior pumps (and the
Saginaw has less of this than others) is that they tend to vent fluid at
high pump speeds.
2 old socks (covering the fillcap and vent)and a hoseclamp takes care of
this on my race car - and given the fact that Trouble isn't likely to be
wound to the end of the tach, it likely would'nt be an issue for you.
The Saginaw wizard of wizards is Tom Lee http://www.leepowersteering.com/ -
his stuff is in many Cup and Busch cars.
