  • Eaton power steering pump seal

    Is there a better power steering pump seal than the old replacement seals from the previous SASCO stock.
    I replaced one with that and it still leaks a little.
    I was wondering if Autozone or NAPA might have a better ones?
    If yes, does anyone know the part numbers?

    Thanks

    Are you sure the seal is leaking? Many people block the reservoir vent, and pressurize the reservoir, forcing fluid out.

      Napa lists seal online if the local store can't find them.

          Unfortunately most of the procedure got lost during the forum "upgrade", but there
          are numbers on my pump rebuild thread.

            The seal you purchased has the original double lip and is it the same quality as the original?

            Thanks
            Paul?

              I just rebuilt one that had a rough area on the shaft (which would cause a leak). However, there is a remedy readily available. Just go to your industrial bearing supply house and ask for a speedy sleeve for a .75 (3/4") shaft. Press it on over damaged area and you will be good to go.

                  Yes by all means see Tom's excellent step-by-step photo montage of the re-build process.
                  Especially note that you put the shaft in from the front completely dissasembled, so as not to nick the seal.

                      This is the exact reason we called for a "How To" section a few years ago and got shut down, but it seems we got a Stove Huggers Section instead so that makes it all ok. ?? I'm not complaining, it's just an observation. If we had that "How To" section I am positive many members would contribute to it and use it... I've got several "how to items" that I would take time and contribute, from rebuilding a power steering valve, PS pump, dialing in a bellhousing, building a engine stand, change jetting in a AFB etc, but why bother? All of them would just get all just get lost in the piles of eye candy that we see every day. Bob's Avanti page saved one of my How to items too, otherwise it would be lost in the archives as well.

                        Yes, 7465 is the exact style of the original. There is actually more than one part number that will work. The Eaton pump was used by several auto manufacturers (such as Ford) and therefore the seal is fairly common.

                            Preaching to the choir, but hey, you can post it up, and send the link to Bob for long
                            term storage. I hope that SDC sees the merit in Bobs page and perhaps creates a
                            carbon copy of it on their servers (with Bobs approval of course). I fear that there
                            will be a day that Bobs site disappears, unless someone else takes over his FTP at
                            the time of his passing. When I lost my FTP for the pictures, it was a wake up call
                            that all good things can come to an end. Bob is hosting the pictures on his site. My
                            posts on SDC use my friends FTP these days.

                              Thank you everyone for the help.
                              These were the most helpful responses I have ever received.
