I have a 1984 FJ60 and I've been looking at Valley Hybrids kit for steering pump conversion and also this one from City Racer. My pump is chucking out fluid through the front seal and dousing my hood on hard lock. Can anyone tell me pros and cons of either? I'm a newb and sometimes struggle with the jobs that require brute force. My bro-in-law is out of country, I usually call on him when I need the leverage or strength I can't muster. That said, I'm house sitting and have full access to his great tools and workshop. I like the idea of not changing the truck too much *ie not cutting the bracket. However, it sounds from what I'm reading that the saginaw conversion is a more powerful pump and people can really tell the difference.
I'm less intimidated by this City Racer pump since it seems like a straight swap, but prior to knowing about it I was feeling like I would be able to do the conversion that Georg makes. Any and all insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
