Bruce, look at the picture, right to the right of the data plate on the timing case cover, and just above the front motor mount, you will see a oval plate with two bolts. Remove this cover and the gear drive for the PS pump is right inside. Shove the pump in and two bolts, plug and play.A block off plate ? I will look . Big learning curve here. Kinda like my steering box hitting my starter. Normally I would just move themotor to the side but then a mess of new pronblems arise .
Brute 67;I'm in the process of using a Vickers V10 pump to replace the Hobourn pump behind the cpmpressor. The problem I was having was decreasing the pump flow to 3.5 to 4 gallons per minute so the 800 series Saginaw steering box would not overheat. I found that Straightline Steering in San Jose, CA could build me a Vickers V10 solution for about $250. Mark over there is a great help.
This is what I know of the Vickers V10....other people may want to chime in if I'm not accurate. I purchased a Bendix BX2150 compressor with a Hobourn power steering pump attached to the compressor using a standard S.A.E 2 bolt configuration. The combined unit came off a Bluebird bus with a 12 valve 5.9l. The Hobourn pump operates at 5 gallons a minute 2000 to 2500 psi depending on configuration. My steering box is a Saginaw 800 off a early Scout with upgraded internals. My application is a early Bronco so the Saginaw box had to be refitted with a counter clockwise constant ratio rack for the proper tie rod drag link configuration I needed. The Saginaw box is only rated at about 3-4 gallons per minute and 1200-1500 psi. I posted this question to the group under "Hydraulic Experts?" and Mcinfantry suggested a Vickers V10 may work.Brute 67;
could you go into a little more detail ? What is the GPM of the Vckers V10 Pump and relief pressure ? WIll the V10 pump fit, plug and play in the 4B series. What is the application your doing needing the V10 Pump. I need some education so I can make more informed decisions with my swaps.
