That's absolutely correct!
Many people wonder where the oil on the underside of their hood comes from. ..
It is not that the pump is overfilled.

Given as much work as is going into Dad's truck (blasting and painting the frame, painting all the body parts, painting or powder-coating the engine parts, and painting all the plastic parts with SEM) I can't stand the thought of having the PS pump spray all over everything. Justification for a Saginaw in and of itself. Not to mention getting rid of the groans. And then there's the slick mount arrangement that I found.

My Ranger has a very similar power steering pump to the CII. It never whined before I changed the rack and pinion. But then when I re-filled it and started the truck up, it had a nasty whine. Found a procedure for "bleeding" the air out of the pump, and it helped get rid of almost all of the whine. There's still a little whine at full lock, and I could probably bleed it some more to get rid of that. But it's quiet under normal turns, so I'm happy with that.

One time when I had to tow the truck home, I was driving it with no power. Fluid was everywhere under the hood when I got home. If I had the bracket for the sag pump and the pump and hoses, I'd do it.

Look in the econolines. I see them all the time. Mostly 351W and straight 6. They are set up for a serpentine belt. Should not be very hard to switch over to a v belt using your existing pulley.

I've never had our PS pump spray everywhere before. That's with a v belt system and a 351W. Granted, it leaks quickly now due to a leaky hose from a mouse chewing through it, but that's different.

Replaced the missing license plate lights and started installing the fender clearance lights.

The C2 pumps always mark their territory if you turn the wheels with the engine off.
I don't think any amount of bleeding will keep them from whining against the stops.
Seems to be a feature.
Saginaw pumps hhave a larger diameter shaft.
You need a pulley from a v-belt van.
Easier to find the whole setup from one with a carburetor.

Good luck finding one in the JY with a carburetor. Most of them are still on the road here.

Hardly anything left up here in the land of ice and salt.
Most all the yards cleared out to China when scrap was high before the tarriffs

Every time I go somewhere I see old vehicles on the roads or in peoples driveways. Usually in decent shape. I don't see rusted out cab corners or fender wells too often here. If I do, they usually came from somewhere else.

I didn't do anything to the truck, but I moved the parts in the garage. Does that count? I have the trans and driveline still in the garage. I'm trying to make some space.
