Actually, yes, I have never bought a PS pump, only rebuilt them. Getting the can off the pump without damaging it is the hardest part. After that, it comes apart pretty easily. Most any pump of this design can be used for parts too. So, if you can find a similar pump (the guts would be the same) you could use it for the needed parts to renew your pump and then you just need the rebuild kit (seal, O-ring, etc.).

So you did not try the stangersite guy I pointed you to? Seems to me he was very reasonable on price and had a lot of options (that could help out a person in your situation/location).

A true 1970 power steering pump was a one year only. Identified by the offset high pressure fitting on the back. This pump would need to use the all steel pump mounting bracket, instead of the 1967-69 aluminum bracket.

Yep, not Lin is 100% correct. The pump innards (what goes bad) however, have been the same for just about forever.

The pump part is all the same, not Lin. The little wedgie things and the rotor housing they run in, etc...

Nope,i did not get any information about that ....who do you mean ?

And what i am considering is just buying a new pump ( keep te original can and pulley )just install a new pump
but since there are a couple of pumps on rockauto i dont know which one i need...

@ Cougar CJ, i tried ordering one from WCCC but the quantity was not available for a new steering pump

i used the stangersite guy to rebuild my control valve and he did a good job.

considering do the same thing with the p/s pump. it works ok, but way better at higher rpms. not so much "power" at low rpm. any way to tell if rebuilding the pump would improve the performance significantly?

Sounds like a worn pump, does it make groaning noises at low speed?

+1 for Stangersite.

If you choose a rebuilt, pay the core charge and hold onto yours until the replacement pump is in and working (unless sourcing from WCCC or someone who knows Cougars). I made the mistake many years ago by going through my local Ford dealer thinking I would get the best rebuilt pump humanly possible. They sent my core to a typical rebuilder somewhere in LA and the one I got back had the wrong can. It was a heroic effort to get mine back before the can was lost, and after a can swap, the darned thing growled bit and leaked! It was not until many years later that MC.net turned me onto Stangersite who 1) knew about the unique can and 2) rebuilt it to run quiet and dry.

Come to think of it, while Ford's rebuilder searched for my can I had to rent a car to attend a family event 100+ miles away. That sure was an expensive rebuilt pump...
