Hi All,

When I turn my stearing, I notice a loud whinning sound. I know it is the power stearing unit.

Fluid goes down slowly, and the oil in it is "BLACK".

Should Iget a new unit, or something like this "http://shop.allfourx4.com.au/Power-Steering-Pump-Overhaul-Kit-suit-Landcruiser-1HZ-6cyl-Diesel"

Can I just get a seal kit?

Thanks

Adriaan,

If the oil is black, you certainly need to change it!!!!!!!

Get the kit you mentioned but make sure there is a main shaft in the kit too. Your old shaft will probably be scored, and will leak, even with a new seal.

I did the pump in our 80 series, some years ago, and the bloke suppplied the main shaft as well, and have had no further trouble with it.

Didn't take enough notice when I stripped the pump, and put the parts in ar$e up, so ended up doing it 2 or 3 times. The Boss wasn't happy at the time, as we were going on holidays the next day.........

That looks the go, Bob. The pump on all 1HZ, & factory turbo derivatives are all the same, I'm lead to believe.

When you get the new kit in, you might want to fill with new oil, then warm it up, and drain. This should get bulk of the old oil out, before refilling a 2nd time.

Happy mechanicing......

Bob.

G'day Adriaan,
I did mine a few years ago and it only cost $38 for the kit. Not all that hard to do.
Now changing the weeping rubber power steering hoses is another kettle of fish. I need to do the one out of the steering pump side.

Cheers,
Bill
