Power Steering help needed

Hi all are there any power steering experts on this site ? I've just got the van going today (put in a 5L from a VQ stato) Any how I toped up the power steering fluid and it is running out the bottom of the pump. It's to hot in the shed too pull it out right now. So the question is can the pump from the VQ be used in the WB ? P/S does any body have a spare HQ to WB power steer pump in the Ipswich or south Brisbane area. Cheers Manky

If the the pumps are both metric (pretty sure they are), then they are interchangable. to find out, look behind the pulley at where the shaft comes from the pump body and it'll say metric. I they both say metric you're sweet, if they both dont you're sweet, if they're both different - no luck!

Is it leaking from the crease on the bottom of the pump, or from the return hose? ps hoses can become cracked easily after being taken off and put back on.

Also, depending on the way the pump is mounted you may have to change over the bolts on the back of the pump itself as one usually has a bolt thread sticing out for mounting, and the other is flat..

Hope this helps,

Dave

So is it the commy pump that is leaking? If so, check the high pressure hose fitting on the pump end.
If it dosent have a little o ring on the end of the pipe you have the wrong hose. You might have to call enzed.

Could also be one of several seals/orings on the pump.

Can't tell where it's coming from yet it was to hot to pull it out. The high pressure is only about 6 months old and so is the return hose .But it could be them. The reason I asked about the VQ pump is because I heard or read somewhere the power steer racks need less pressure .[http://gallery.oldho...|My shed]
