Power steering pump leaks so I was trying to cross reference to an automotive pump. They're pretty much the same but the difference I see is the return line location to the resevoir. Saginaw pumps came with a number of return line config's from what I can see. I know I will have to swap the spring, valve and high pressure fitting from my old pump to retain the same line pressure. I thought it was leaking from the bottom of the pinch weld of the resevoir but looking at it closer, that may not be the case. So, I want to replace the whole asy.
$400 for a Mercruiser pump is ridiculous.
PO's quick fix. Missed a spot though.
The power steering return line from the "Rack" (not sure of the boat term) to the cooler so I'm wondering what the cheapest fix is for this. Its leaking right at the rubber hose as it goes into the fitting to the "Rack". Would I be ok if I just cut the hose, cut the compression joint off the fitting and clamp it? I'm assuming there isn't alot of pressure on the return line if its anything like a car.
