I have a '64 GT with factory power steering. The pump seems to get too hot. When the engine is warmed up the pump gets so hot you can only touch it briefly without getting burned. This just seems way to hot to me. Has anyone else had this problem? It is leaking alittle too so I thought of having it rebuilt. What should I look to have addressed as the cause of the excess heat?
Thanks,

i'd be looking for a restriction in the system or possibly a bad pressure regulator:)
