Steering Pump and Seals

Recommended Posts

    Hey guys. Sorry to write another thread, but I'm needing to get some things fixed and need a little help.

 

1st: powersteering pump.

   So Genos garage has a new, not rebuilt borgeson steering pump for my truck. I believe its 800328. I've thought about just resealing mine, but there is more going on to it than I think a re-seal will do. Fluids smell burnt, its leaking, and it whines and groans prett bad, especially in the morning. 258k miles I'm sure it's about done.

    They have the same pump on amazon, but the reviews arent pretty. So I'm not sure what to do here, I dont want to take a risk and buy a piece of crap. 

    While it's out, I'll be re-sealing the vacuum pump. Also, what is a good steering fluid to use in the new pump?

 

2nd: axel seal

 

    So when I had my ball joints done, I was going to have my axel seal done too while he was at it. But he told me I have the wrong part. I made sure at napa it was the axel with the CAD, but when looking online at torque king .com, it doesnt look the same. I've included a pic of napas for some help clarifying too. Also, the torque king has the CAD seal too, NAPA didnt.

What are your guys thoughts? 

My pump is leaking quite a bit just sitting over the weekend, I need to get it done soon.

 

Thanks for the continued help.

On the steering give Ryan @Blue-Top Steering a shout and he's got seal kits for our steering boxes. As for the power steering pump you could just get a NAPA but make sure you flush the entire system before changing either the pump or the steering box.

 

Not to badmouth anyone, but I had to replace my output shaft seal on my Blue Top Steering box. I called Ryan up and he send a new seal to me. I was able to seal change without pulling the steering box. Again thanks Ryan for the support for your product!

I'll probably be replacing the lines too

I dont know if this is all the lines here, but it looks like it.BORG-925117 on genos or amazon.

 

As for the steering box, I'm not doing that quite yet. But maybe the spring. Either red head or blue top, but blue top looks like it's got a huge back order for our style of trucks last I checked.

 

Again, I think my powersteering pump is about done. Its smells burnt, groans like a bear, and leaks a lot too. So there may be damage already done. 

 

But the axel seal........

That looks like all the lines you'll need and an inline filter should be installed on the power steering box return line.

I would just get a new pump someplace, but before I would remove the old one, I would flush the system till the fluid is clean using the old pump, then install a filter like suggested, then instal a new pump. That way you won't contaminate the new pump. Then change your fluid more frequently along with a filter. 

On the seal, the one you're holding looks right from the picture. It has metal lip that guides axles haft in. Not sure about them part numbers.

I always wondered why it was so easy to get the axles back in. Thought maybe I was that good or just lucky.
