I'm not sure. The motor is slowly coming back together. Hopefully I will have it running by the 15th and I will let you know!

Nice work Elliot!

FYI, I detailed my PS pump rebuild in my 60 series PS on a 40 thread: http://forum.ih8mud.com/co-wy-horset...ir-pump-2.html

Starts at post #45

In hindsight, this would be great content for the Trails. Mark W already wrote up doing the 60 series PS conversion for a 40, so I had no concerns there, but the PS pump rebuild would have been good content to write up for TT.

Also, I think a reason these pumps leak is the bronze bushing in the front gets worn from belt tension. I found a replacement bushing, but I could not get the old bushing pressed out of the pump I was rebuilding...

I hope your pump works well!

One significant tip I'd add to the instructions is to measure the difference in length of the rotor and the pump housing. This is the heigth of the step between the rotor and housing shown in the 8th picture. If the step is too big (manual says something like 0.003") then the pump won't develop enough pressure. I had a non leaking pump that had 0.025" clearance and wasn't rebuildable due to wear.

I have read in my research of repairing this pump that the largest tires you can run on a Fj60 are 33s. I'm continuously having problems with my ps pump. What kind of pump could i put on to replace this pump? I was thinking of using a Chevrolet ps pump since they are so much easier to find replacements for. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (I am currently running 33s on my fj60)

A GM/Saginaw pump will certainly put up enough pressure to turn larger tires. If you are tired of the OEM FJ60 pump that would be my first replacement option. There are a lot of bracket options available to mount Saginaw pumps to 2F engines and several folks on IH8MUD that have done this:

I have a Saginaw pump mounted to the 2F in my FJ40 driving an FJ60 steering gear and am happy with it.

EDIT: Oh and by the way the Saginaw pumps that come on Volvos have a wide groove pulley that's close to if not the same as what's factory on Land Cruisers...
