Glad you figured it out Joe.  Once you get that new pump on there, it should be a quick bleed and go.

you shouldn't have to really bleed anything just fill it and start turning the wheel while it's running, just turn until you feel resistance then let off then turn some more until it will turn smooth and even lock to lock Wink

Turning the wheel lock to lock (without hitting the stops) is always what I understood to be the process to "bleed" a P/S system.  I guess I should have clarified.  Every time I have done it, it's usually a very quick process.

My new Lares pump arrived last week, so Saturday I set it out on the bench and compared it to my original....
 
 


and then I cleaned it good and got the first coat of paint on it.
 


The Super Clean Degreaser wasn't too kind to the paint on the reservoir, so I sand blasted it, the pulley and brackets and reshot them as well.
 
 
 


This weekend I'll second coat the pump and reservoir and then hit them with a coat of clear this time for a bit of added protection from future engine cleanings.

Looks good. 

I just cleaned my pump and after the leaks seals were replaced, I did what my father used to do. Blue rattle can. Excelt he painted everything, including vacuum lines, stickers, wires, and anything else I forgot. Haha

Last weekend I second coated the parts and this weekend, I reassembled the pump....
 
 
 


but I have about 1/32" of end play in the shaft, so I have contacted Lares to verify this is OK and would disappear once the pump is full of fluid and the system bled out and ready to go....  don't want to have to pull it off a third time!!

FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

QUICK UPDATE........ Heard back from Lares and they said all is good that filling and purging the power steering system will eliminate the shaft end play. WHEW.......... Beer
