Saginaw pump's the way to go.Funny thing when components start to fail on 4X4's everyone turns to Chevy to cure the shortcomings of there vehicle of choice.

Some people just like to build a chevy one piece at a time.I think they enjoy the challange.We're just lazy Larry we start with the good parts, and don't have to build custom brackets and motor mounts to make them fit.

I have been doing a bit of reading and it seems ford also used saginaws on vans and heavy duty applications so it might be an idea to look for one of them . I will see what i can dig up for information

Pumpkin what sort of a Warrenty does Canadian tire have on PS pumps and I have a good pump off of a newer truck (serpintine belt , i think it is called a type C-3 pump)is this a higher pressure pump and can it be used if i change the pulley ?

They used them on mostly big blocks and vehicles with hydroboost.If you know someone with a welder it would be easy enough to weld the chevy bracket to the ford bracket.;)

yes some ford vans came with saginaw pumps if you have a serpentine belts it will be a bit more difficult to swap in tho

oh and i know you chevy guys are just reading the ford tech to learn how to do things the right way

i have no idea what to put here

i have the same problem, two pumps in two trips. the first one was faulty, second on just blew seals and made a big mess under the hood. i heard rumors of using a thicker fluid, maybe gear oil in them. i also heard this is a bad idea. i wonder what they use in the f 4/550 hd's. i need somthing beteer.

S A G I N A W is what they use. When anyone needs reliable parts they turn to GM.

Saginaw is a division of GM. The lines are cheap and easy to make as I learned while doing my winch and hydroboost.

I've noticed that since the SAS and even with bigger tires my pump doesn't seem to be straining as much.
Could it be that my TTB was that screwed up or is their weird geometry just harder to turn??
