HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin

I contacted turn one about a power steering pump to power the steering rack and hydroboost. They said my pump could be modified to match the flow I need for $75. He did mention the pump on my motor is variable steering, the pressure decreases as the pump speed increases. That wouldn't be a problem would it? This is a street driven car.

Is this your stock GTO pump? If so, I sent mine to them for mods several years ago, they called me up and said that was a truck pump, which if you trace the part number it is. They do not work on those pumps, which is why I have one of theirs now. I bought a f-body PS bracket to mount the Turn-One pump, the truck pump was bolted right into the head with no mounting bracket.

Apparently, they work on them now. They asked for pictures to verify what pump it was and said they could modify it to work in the correct pressure range.

Nice, well that would have saved me $250 or so! I still have that truck pump laying around. Smile

And if you pull the reservoir off, you have a nice barb fitting to attach a hose to and connect right to the BMW reservoir if you go that route. I'd like to do a pump reservoir delete for my BMW hydroboost, but it would require a trip to a machine shop to get something pressed in to support a hose.

I pushed a 1/2 copper sweat X 3/8 female pipe fitting in the inlet of the pump.
works great.
I tried to add a pic but I can't seem to get it in

What is a copper sweat? Is it similar to a welding tip?

I measured a few fittings today, unfortunately my turn one pump has a 0.76 diameter inlet, so I need to seek another method for deleting the reservoir.

The GTO pump looks like this without the reservoir:

Here's where I ended up. I used a 1/2 NPT tap, that I cut two threads off at a time while tapping to end up with a bottom tap. This worked very well to get enough threads to put in a 1/2 NPT to -10AN adapter. Just need to secure the hoses, and add a clamp to the inlet hose.
